So I was reading about the new Grizzly Man Diaries which shows never-seen-before footage of Timothy Treadwell, the bear nutcase/expert from Werner Herzog's incredible Grizzly Man. Then I came across this clip that purports to be the actual audio recording that captures the death throes of Treadwell and his girlfriend as they were eaten alive by a bear. It sounds terrifyingly real at first as you hear voices screaming "I'm getting killed out here!" and "Fight back!" interspersed by angry bear growling. But I started to question the authenticity of the tape when I heard someone shout: "Hit it with a frying pan!"
Erm.... hit it with what? A frying pan? It sounds a bit like slapstick comedy. Why don't you tweak it's nose and drop an anvil on it's head while you're at it? Now, an audio recording of this terrible incident does actually exist and in Herzog's documentary it's discussed at length. It came from a video camera recovered near the two bodies by Alaska State Troopers and given to Treadwell's close friend Jewel Palovak. Herzog urged Palovak to destroy the tape, but apparently she did not, lending credence to the possibility of it being leaked onto the internet. However, I don't think this is it. Do you?
