    check this out i know i would not like to see this in the woods,,,,


    You MUST see this to believe and be warned!!
    The downloaded pictures are of a
    man who works for the US Forest
    Service in Alaska and his trophy bear
    (killed in self defense).

    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 tourists 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 including a missing hiker.

    The US Forest Service, backtracking from where the bear
    had originated, found the hiker's 38-caliber pistol emptied.
    Not far from the pistol were 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 (the Service 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 immensely.

    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 navel 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.

    WOW WHAT AN INTERESTING ARTICLE.

    GREAT JOB POSTING!!!

    SAL [COLOR=PINKISH WHITE, HAIRLESS] PALOMBO.

    :tounge_out: :roll_eyes:

    I think this is the same bear that was posted every fall for the last few years though. [color=pale, sorta bland with gray highlights] I think It is the bear that ate that nutcase who thought bears were his friends. Somewhere I have the pics of what was left of that otherwise delicious moron from thescene of the meal...er...crime....er...natural selection. [color=green nauseous]
