be afaraid... be very afraid
 
The following (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 unloaded his 7 mm 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 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 below. 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.

The story isnt true. I dont know if the bear or the remains of that guy are real, but I got that email about 2 years ago so he didnt shoot it last week.

I've seen the 2 bear pictures on other web sites more than a year ago.

I just got it last week and had never seen it. How do you know it isn't a true story?

grrranimal,
I removed your other two posts with the pictures. If you want to add the picture of the bear's head here on this thread, I don't have a problem with it. (tho' another moderator might... since this is the 'deer hunting' forum)

As for the one pic with the dead guy... well, that poor guy's picture has floated around the net enough. Besides, as interesting as it is, it certainly isn't appropriate here.

By the way.. you might want to check out Snopes.com They list just about every internet urban legend fact or fallacy out there. It's some good reading. I'm sure you can search for this bear story there too.
