Kelly, you are 100 percent correct, but one thing to note is that those are fatal attacks, not just attacks. Note when they took place. A quick glance at the stats indicate that they mostly happened in the last 20-30 years. Bears are naturally shy, but over the last 25 years the number of people entering their domain has greatly increased. Also, they are now starting to come back to areas where they haven't lived for over 100 years.
