In the forests of northern Minnesota, biologist Dr. Lynn Rogers uses food to gain the trust of wild black bears, a controversial technique developed over his own forty-year journey from fear to fascination. Following the fortunes of mother bear June and her three cubs over a year, the film reveals an intimate portrait of the lives of black bears. See black bears as they have never before been filmed, in this riveting 1-hour documentary by the BBC and the makers of Planet Earth. ‘Bearwalker of the Northwoods’ continues to change people’s attitudes about black bears forever. Humor, charm, beauty, and tears in equal measure. Run time: 60 mins
Note: The film shows the passing of a cub to disease and the opening of hunting season, which for some viewers might be difficult to watch. These situations are not sensationalized; they depict realistically the life of black bears in northern Minnesota.
