        Horace Albright And Bears | Ken Burns: The National Parks

        Official park regulations discouraged tourists from feeding bears, but even Horace Albright (Yellowstone's superintendent before becoming director of the National Park Service) realized what a popular attraction they were. Eventually, at the prodding of biologists who thought parks should preserve wildlife in their natural state, the bears were weaned from tourist handouts and nightly feedings at garbage dumps.
