I was like, Oh god, am I going to reintroduce grizzlies and then die at the hands of a bear?

I know it seems odd. But social pressure is how legislation gets made. With grizzlies in particular, people see them like a Tyrannosaurus rex, when in reality they're more like scaredy-cats. They don't subsist on hikers. Here I am trying to tell people, Bears are sweet, calm down.' And at the same time I have a card game telling people that bears eat babies. I might need to do some course correcting.

Comedically, I use them a lot. I think they're funny. It's like when you see a tiger at the zoo. The way they move, and the way they sun themselves and lay there, they move like a house cat. Your instinct is you want to pet them and play with them, but you can't. Bears are the same. I see them as dogs. They're like a cute, 800-pound, apex predator dog.
