Camp Davis: Where moose and man meet

Chris Malvica had a problem.
A few years ago, a moose was
trespassing on University prop-
erty. He sent out his dog Skippy,
trained to scare away animals,
but Skippy was no match for the
moose, which chased her back
into the house. So Malvica board-
ed his RV and circled the animal,
gunning the engine, until it lum-
bered back into the Wyoming wil-
Malvica is the project coordina-
tor at the University's Camp Davis
in Jackson Hole, Wyo. He spends
half his year in Ann Arbor recruit-
ing and coordinating camp reno-
vations and the other half at the
camp itself, near the base of the
Teton Mountains, doing general
upkeep,cooking and fending off
wild beasts.
During the winter he retreats
to his windowless fifth-floor
office in the C.C. Little Building.

Huge garbage bags stuffed with
Camp Davis fliers are piled on his
couch. Towers of cardboard boxes
line the room. He says he doesn't
spend much time there - he pre-
fers Wyoming. What does his
office look like at the camp?
"It's alog cabin."
Malvica says he probably has
the best view of any University
Malvica took the job in 2002
after spending a summer at the
camp as a cook. A former chef at
the Ritz Carlton, he introduced
filet mignon and fresh fish to the
menu. That year, he was invited to
stay on full time. Malvica accept-
ed and happily bid farewell to his
position as a University electri-
cian,rsaying he had grown "tired
of wiring."
120 acres, is the University's west-
ernmost property. Students come

during the summer and usually
stay for a few weeks studying geol-
ogy, though the camp now offers
an English course as well. Malvi-
ca says the students are gener-
ally well behaved, aside from some
excessive drinking - Malvica's
own beverage of choice is Moose
Drool pale ale - and occasional
kitchen raids, which prompted
him to install a baby monitor in
the cooler.
Malvica says he's accumulating
experiences that might be foreign
to most University staff, but he
hasn't seen anything truly outra-
geous. At least not yet.
"I haven't had the job that long
though, really," he says, "so who

Samantha Bachynski, 20, was
accused along with Patrick Selepak
in the February killings of Scott
and Melissa Berels. She was con-
victed last month of first-degree
murder, home invasion, aiding and

As he sentenced her to four life
terms, Macomb County Circuit
Court Judge Richard Caretti told
Bachynski that her actions were

Raymond Berels, Scott Ber-
els's father, addressed the court
before the sentencing, and pro-

vided a graphic account of the last
moments of the lives of his son and
daughter-in-law, which included
a vicious beating with the butt of
a rifle and Bachynski injecting
bleach into Scott Berels with a
hypodermic needle.
Raymond Berels said he wished
the death penalty was an option in
"It's too bad that a mere matter
of geography has saved her from
a far different fate. Regrettably,
we the taxpayers of the state of
Michigan will have the burden of
housing, clothing and feeding this
parasite for the rest of her life,"
Berels said.
Bachynski sobbed loudly
throughout the proceeding. When
given the opportunity to address
the court, she blamed her fear of
Selepak for her role in the killings.

I was too scared to do it, and no
one seems to understand that," she
"I never wanted those people to
die," she said.
Prosecutors have said Bachyn-

boyfriend kill the Berelses, both 27,
in their home. He pleaded guilty

Eight die in Chinese bus plunge

BEIJING (AP) - A bus carrying
primary school students plunged
off a bridge in northeastern China
yesterday, killing eight of the chil-
dren and injuring 39, state media
The bus was carrying 50 stu-
dents when it fell off the 20-foot-
high bridge about 31 miles from
Harbin, the official Xinhua News
Agency said.
The injured students were taken

to a nearby hospital for treatment,
the report said.
Police said the accident likely
occurred because the driver was
speeding and the bus, which was
licensed to carry only 26 passen-
gers, was overloaded, it said.
The driver has been detained,
and preliminary findings showed
the owner of the bus was not
licensed to operatea school shuttle
bus service, it said.

The students were from the
Zhoujia town central primary
school in the city of Shuangcheng,
it said.
Chinese children attend pri-
mary school between the ages of 6
and 12.
Xinhua cited the Ministry of
Public Security as saying that traf-
fic accidents killed 98,738 people
in China last year, and 73,955 in
the first 10 months of 2006.
