Pooh Bear


This one’s and oldie, but thanks to Adam Lauterbach for the original submission.

The following pictures are of a guy who works for the US Forest Service in Alaska and his trophy bear. He was out deer hunting when a large grizzly bear charged him from about 50 yards away.  The guy unloaded his 7mm Mag 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 1,600 pounds. It stood 12 feet and six inches high at the shoulder, 14 feet 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 bear’s stomach, the Fish and Wildlife Commission established the bear had killed at least two humans in the 72 hours before it was shot. The bear’s last meal was the unlucky nature buff in a picture I didn’t post here because it’s kind of gruesome (and it show’s the dead hikers junk, which my web host probably wouldn’t be too happy with).  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 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.
