    Of course it is dangerous.

    snopes.com: Photographer Michio Hoshino Killed by Bear

    These are but 2 incidents where nature photographers have died, possibly because of the job.

    Angry animals, harsh environments... No one said it was easy. Sometimes it's not even the animals, but the micro-organisms where you are:

    The documentary "Grizzly Man" directed by Werner Herzog chronicling the life story and ultimately, mauling of bear conservationist Timothy Treadwell in October 2003, does reflect the delicate balance in relationships between man and beast and the consequence if this balance is taken for granted in anyway.

    In that specific case the man was an idiot and deserved what befell him. Sorry about his girlfriend though.

    Passion is one thing, obsession is another matter. Never overestimate your own abilities or become complacent/over confident

    He does have a rather polarising personality. :)

    For those who are interested, a brief biography and circumstances into Timothy Treadwell's demise can be found here including detailed analysis into the chilling final audio footage that recorded Timothy Treadwell's and his girlfriend, Amie Huguenard's final struggle for survival against the grizzly bear whose kind Timothy Treadwell had repeatedly sworn to protect with his life.

    If either of the stuff destroyed had belonged to me, the people involved would have been at risk of death.
