ARTICLE EXCERPT: Smoking marijuana and getting up close and personal with grizzly bears doesn’t mix. That advice was part of a May 4 ruling issued by a judge in a workers’ compensation court deciding the bizarre case of a Flathead man mauled by a grizzly he was attempting to feed at the Great Bear Adventures park in West Glacier in 2007.
At issue was whether the victim, Brock Hopkins, was an employee of Great Bear Adventures at the time of the attack and thus eligible for workers’ compensation for the severe injuries he sustained. On the other side was Russell Kilpatrick, who owns the property upon which Great Bear Adventures is located, and the Montana Uninsured Employers’ Fund.
