    Actor Dan Haggerty, TV's 'Grizzly Adams,' dies at 73

    [​IMG]

    Actor Dan Haggerty of “Grizzly Adams” fame died early Friday of cancer, said his longtime friend and manager Terry Bomar. He was 73. Haggerty learned he had cancer of the spine in August and died at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, Bomar said.

    Born and raised in Los Angeles, Haggerty was a product of Hollywood, the son of an entertainment industry veteran. His parents wanted him to be a priest. But Haggerty proved a “wild child” who “went off track and became fast and furious,” Bomar said.

    As a young man he got a job with a ranch in the San Fernando Valley that trained animals for film productions, and became an animal handler. He wrangled rabbits and frogs for various film productions and was a stuntman on the side.

    The combination of skills led to his discovery as an actor. He was working on a film shoot in Canada, filming a scene that required him to chase a tiger across a frozen lake in an attempt to rope it, Bomar said.

    Apparently, this proved a memorable escapade. A colleague on the set later tapped the bearded Haggerty for the role of woodsman “Grizzly Adams” in the 1974 back-to-nature movie, which later became a TV series.

    Robin, Beth just rescued a bear with pink eye and Dan Haggerly sent her a nice note to thank her for all the wonderful things she does.

    I think those hollywood producers killed him to create a buzz for the new movie in which Leo gets fucked by a bear.

    When TV Guide was the #1 magazine in the USA.
    No "TV Guide Effect."
    Grizzly Adams cancelled after one and a half seasons.

    Wiki says it ran two seasons. Anyway I didn't realize it was that short. I used to watch that show religiously. Always loved Denver Pyle as the crotchety old man. And old Number 7!

    Wow! He was only in his early 30s when he was doing Grizzly Adams? I didn't watch the show so I have only seen stills and clips, but I would have guessed his early to mid 40s.
