Despite what TvTropes.org might tell you, not everything is worse with Bears. St. Seraphim of Sarov is an excellent example of how this is not the case. Famously saying, "Acquire inner peace, and thousands around you will be saved," his inner peace allowed him to communicate with various dangerous animals in the Siberian Wilderness.
Such as Grizzly bears.
Yeah, he was kind of a badass.
