New Hampshire 'Bear Whisperer' visits with students in wake of black bear shooting

Kilham - tall, sturdy, good-looking, gray-haired, madly in love with bears - looks like he lives outdoors. Once a custom gunsmith, he retired 16 years ago to eight acres of fenced-in New Hampshire woods to study bear life. He's rehabilitated and released 65 black bear cubs there now - feeding them, following them and learning how they think. He's written several books, including "Among the Bears: Raising Orphan Cubs in the Wild," and is invited to speak on bear behavior in faraway places like Russia and China.
