You Wanna Talk Bear Stories......
This is one of the craziest things I have ever seen: Enjoy boys and girls!!
Do ya think a gorilla could of taken this bear.......
Read this story first before you look at the pictures. This is absolutely amazing! Remind me not to go hiking in Alaska! The above attached (first two) pictures are of a guy who works for the US Forest Service in Alaska and his trophy bear. He was out deer hunting last week when a large grizzly bear charged him from about 50 yards away. The guy emptied his 7mm Magnum semi-automatic rifle into the bear and it dropped a few feet from him. The big bear was still alive so he reloaded and shot it several times in the head. The bear was just over one thousand six hundred pounds. It stood 12'
6" high at the shoulder, 14' to the top of his head. It's the largest grizzly bear ever recorded in the world. Of course, the Alaska Fish and Wildlife Commission did not let him keep it as a trophy, but the bear will be stuffed and mounted, and placed on display at the Anchorage airport (to remind tourist's of the risks involved when in the wild). Based on the contents of the bears stomach, the Fish and Wildlife Commission established the bear had killed at least two humans in the past 72 hours. His last meal was the unlucky nature buff in the third picture attached. The US Forest Service, backtracking from where the bear had originated, found the hiker's
38-caliber pistol emptied. Not far from the pistol was the remains of the hiker. The other body has not been found. Although the hiker fired six shots and managed to hit the grizzly with four shots (they ultimately found four
38 caliber slugs along with twelve 7mm slugs inside the bear's dead body), it only wounded the bear and probably angered it. The bear killed the hiker an estimated two days prior to the bear's own death by the gun of the Forest Service worker. Think about this - If you are an average size man; You would be level with the bear's belly button when he stood upright, the bear would look you in the eye when it walked on all fours! To give additional perspective, consider that this particular bear, standing on its hind legs, could walk up to an average single story house and look over the roof, or walk up to a two story house and look in the bedroom windows.

I couldnt even imagine the pure and utter horrific terror that dude musta been feelin.
thats completely horrible. Interesting though how the bear started to get a 'taste' for humans.
fakin things are incredible.
the only thing I would put money on that thing against it would probably be a fully grown male hippo. Those matherfackers are the number one mankillers in all of africa.
that bear is wicked tho
