Grizzly bear, performer in movies and television, kills his trainer

Published 04/24/08

Paramedics rushed to an animal trainer who had been bitten on the neck by a 700-pound, 7-1/2-foot-tall grizzly bear. Stephan Miller, 39, died at the scene. Miller was killed by the 5-year-old bear during the making of a promotional video for Randy Miller's Predators in Action center. The bear's fate has not been decided. "It's still a wild animal," said a woman who works with wild animals. "Even though it may appear that the bear attacked for no reason, there was a reason. ... They're not cold-blooded killers." Born Free USA united with API has long warned of the dangers of using wild animals in entertainment and has documented dozens of deaths and attacks by wild animals at facilities using wild animals for amusement.
