here is the link of the article:
urbanlegends.about.com...


This bear was killed by an airman from Elmendorf on Hitchenbrook Island. The bear stood 12'6" and estimated over 1600 lbs. The airman was walking to his hunting area and the bear boy stood up only 35 yards away. The bear dropped down and charged straight for the Airman. He unloaded his gun and the bear fell 10 yards from him.

The following pictures are of a guy who works for the forest service in Alaska. He was out deer hunting. A large world record Griz 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 thing 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.

It's a world record. The bear had killed a couple of other people. Of course, the game department did not let him keep it.

Think about it. This thing on it's hind legs could walk up to the average single story house and could look on the roof at eye level.


And here are some pictures of the bear and the victims.
WARNING. The upcoming pictures contain pretty gross subjects. If you are faint of heart or stomach don't look at it.

Well. i was pretty shocked when i saw it. That thing is compared the the other grizzly bears pretty big.
What would you do when you had a gun. And he stood around the 40/50 yards distance from you? Would you shoot it? Or let it live freely. Or just shoot it in the leg so it won't die. Scary though, To have such a big grizzly bear with a short distance from you.

In one of my alaskan hunting books there is a record of a bear shot with a .375 H&H in the early 1900's that weighed over 2000 pounds!

I was able to contact the shooter of the bear a year ago and he sent me additional pics of his camp and of the bear. It is an urban legend. The story is false. I will submit more pics of bear and camp when I get home.

I came across the photo of the victim about three years ago. The man was apparently attacked by a pack of feral dogs, although I don't remember the location.

Definitely a big bear! This was covered well here in the Anchorage Daily News except we got the truth. They ran a second article to try and stop the lies. Shortly after this rumor started I was visiting a friend in Idaho and he told me the fake story and said his next door neighbor was a personal friend of the guy who shot it and that everyone was lying about it not being a world record. I had to send him a copy of the article to convince him his trusted neighbor was a lying. They are still not talking after the ensuing argument.

I should have mentioned that even though it was a large bear there are many mounted examples throughout Alaska in motels and what not that are much larger. The Kodiak Brown Bear is the largest surviving species of bear on the earth.
