Man 1, Bear 2......

Damn....this was a big animal....

Via Mike Jericho

"The attached pictures are of a guy who works for the Forest Service in
Alaska. He was out deer hunting. A large Grizzly charged him from about
50 yards away. The guy unloaded a 7mm Mag Semi-auto into the bear and it
dropped a few feet from him. The monster was still alive so he reloaded
and capped it in the head.

It was over one thousand six hundred pounds, 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 game department did not let him keep it. It
will be mounted and put on display at the Anchorage airport (to remind
tourist's of the risks involved when in the wild). "

Check out the links of the pictures of this beast. This thing had been shot previously by other humans, who proceeded to become bear food, and apparently it just annoyed him. Note to self, when hiking in Alaska, bring a BIGGER GUN.
