This would seem to go along with the current trend of anthropomorphizing animals. While I have no personal knowledge of grizzlies as far as making contact with one, it gets a little ridiculous how many writers treat wild animals as if they are our pets rather than rendering them the respect of any wild creature.

This reminds me of the old "Wild America" nature show with Marty Stoufer. I laughed at how he used to dub in a supposed sound that the animal(s) made while he filmed them.

All this kind of fiction does is lead lay people into a false sense of what these animals are really like and what their true nature is. I like to call it "cartoon making" or caricaturing the animals.
