World’s Largest Bear

The pictures are of a man 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 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 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 (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.

  2. […] So I just saw that the same few posts that are usually in my top posts are there. Since WordPress’ servers run on GMT, they are ahead of me by 8 hours. So it has already done the tallying for my current day the fourth. My all famous World’s Largest Bear myth post pulled in just under two hundred hits today. That’s one of my higher hits for that post in a single day for some time. […]

  3. […] So I was just checking my e-mail and I saw that I had 8 or so new comments. I thought that it was pretty cool since I haven’t posted a myth like, the world’s largest bear, or a hot new web tool like, coComment. I went ahead and opened one up. To my surprise, it was spam. The same thing with all of the others. […]
