Psychic Bears

The Tribune has a piece today (printed here) by a guy who spent some time in ANWR with his wife. During his time there, he had an encounter with some grizzlies. This fellow postulates that bears have "a kind of sixth sense" that tells them if a visitor wants to do them harm.

Thus, he suggests, any oil company executive who wants to drill in ANWR should first be required to spend a night with the bears, no doubt with Mr. Doherty's hope that they'll make a tasty bear snack. Pretty silly stuff unless you're some kind of a wholistic, new age lefty.

I wonder if the converse is true? In other words, if the bears don't attack the oil company exec, does that mean that it's ok to drill in ANWR? Good question, let's ask Dr. Doolittle.
