At Grizzly Bear Feeding Grounds near Canyon Hotel
 (White Specs are Gulls)                  7:30PM     July 30 - 1941
For much of Yellowstone's history,
garbage from park hotels was
regularly fed to bears in front of seated
audiences like this one. In the 1930s,
research of Adolph Murie and others
pointed to the benefits of
noninterference with Yellowstone's
ecological system. According to
Aubrey Haines, the public spectacle of
feeding hotel garbage to bears at
Canyon was discontinued in 1941, the
same year this photograph was taken.
