Hunter and Hunted: Bear Man's Land

Hunter and Hunted: Bear Man's Land
Vitaly Nikolaenko, a self-taught bear naturalist & amateur photographer, spent most of his life tracking some of the world's biggest brown bears until he was viciously killed by one. After his nearly 30 years of experience working in close proximity with bears, what made this one suddenly turn on him? Could it have been a shortage of food or did Vitaly's own actions spark the attack? With a team of experts, forensic evidence & Vitaly's original footage, NGC sheds light on what actually happened.
