I've posted on this board for a long time. I never personally met Stephan, but I felt like I knew him. Obviously, we all know what happened with him. I happened to run across the documentary last night of his last day (maybe I'm late to the party?). The video is very graphic and I had mixed emotions on whether to watch it or not. I ended up deciding to watch it because I felt that I needed to get the story behind the incident and not just assume the animal should or shouldn't be put down. I felt like, although graphic, the documentary was done very well and it was very nice to see his cousin Randy get involved with the documentary. I don't know if any has watched it, maybe everyone already has; but I was really moved by the video last night. It gave me a great appreciation for the work that Randy Miller puts in and gave me a new understanding about the treatment of these animals.
Here is the link if anyone does want to watch it. I recommend watching it if you can handle the explicit nature of the film.

I had no idea about this until after I joined this great site a few months ago and read up on it. I have just watched this video. It is very insightful and like you said graphic and emotional. I really feel bad for what happened to Stephen and also really feel bad for Randy. It must be incredibly difficult to live with the death of your cousin who you witnessed get mauled by a bear that you had trained and care about. I think this was a total accident and something Rocky did because of how he was trained (used to the arm coming up when about to wrestle).
Just from watching this I can tell both Miller boys are great guys with incredible passion. I think it's fantastic that Randy honoured his cousin by getting the tattoo "Stevie" designed tattooed on him. Incredibly sad I hope the family can move on and I wonder what they decided to do with Rocky.
rskin72: Wonder who else was injured today. Schreff….

Carnack: Dunbar lost his mind
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:20 GMT -5
Carnack: still very much a WIP
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:44 GMT -5
rskin72: Yep....we are. But we need to beat Dullass and NY. The Fecals will be a tough nugget.

Carnack: we match up wel and play the eaglestough every year. Its teh Cowboys we have a hard time getting by
Oct 14, 2018 15:09:19 GMT -5
rskin72: AS still has some growing pains with his receivers. Just not totally in synch. And God only knows it seems like every team musters a rush against us
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:04 GMT -5
rskin72: Yea, I will agree with you about the fecals and turds....the Gits also seem to have our number
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:34 GMT -5
rskin72: Or KC's number to be specific
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:44 GMT -5
Carnack: we will at the least split with the boys and the giants this year, though I think we will sweep the giants..the Eagles are the best team in the division and we will have to bring our A game to beat them.

rskin72: And hopefully have some folks back from injury. Need to be at full strength....or close to it
Oct 14, 2018 15:12:33 GMT -5
Carnack: we just need to get this secondary some experience without losing....its obvious they are very raw
Oct 14, 2018 15:13:34 GMT -5
rskin72: we should sweep the Gits. Manning has looked bad. But he does have OBJ...and their rookie RB looks very good
