These pics just made my day.


The one where he is sat at the dinner table just made me
I have enough trouble keeping my kitties away from my food let alone a grizzly!

I haven't done anything to verify the veracity of the story as I dont want to spoil it for myself

Cool story that he saved one cub. However, that bear is one predatory instinct away from mauling everyone at Thanksgiving.

The new Grizzly Adams!!! I loved that show!

Thanks for sharing such a nice story! I not sure I would let it around any children ever, but as an adult, it's his choice.

I wonder if he has been hassled by authorities for raising it?

Wow, hot wife!


Seriously though, how does the bear move around in the house without simply destroying everything? Touching story though...just hope the bear never exhibits the wild side.... Still a wild animal...and you never know what may trigger something.

It's good that he raised the bear but he really should have stopped communicating with it whenever it reached adulthood. It doesn't matter if you raise a wild animal, it's still wild. They still abide by their natural instincts and like someone up above said, it's just one predatory instinct away from mauling everyone at Thanksgiving. Keeping a wild animal especially one of that size and stature with a strong jaw, huge fangs, and claws is a dangerous game to play.

Although I think its true that a wild animal is wild no matter how it grows up, and should be respected as such, this is not the same as raising a cheetah or a leopard cub. Both of those will gain adult hood, and pretty much immediately eat the heck out of anything they can get thier fangs into.

A bear however is not quite as imprinted with violence from birth, as a big cat baby can be. They have to learn from thier parents how to be viscious, how to do damage. If anything the danger this bear poses, having been bought up by a person, is if it accidentally crushes someone in a hug, or carelessly shoulder checks someone down some stairs.

For me the possibility of someday being killed by my furry friend would more than be made up for by Having a bear swimming in my pool!

He's in a hot tub with a bear drinking a beer for gods sake!! How much better can life get

Possibly, but I'd want to be able to ride it like a horse for a while too.

maaaan, you could ride the bear to the store to get the beers in, and then enjoy them in the tub together while high-five-ing the total awesomeness of your life. it's enough to make me weep mighty man-tears.

ftw

With all the messed up stuff going on in the world these days, it's these kind of stories that give a little light in a dark world.

Star and flag.

That was my thought as well.
Good thing it is not a tiger!
He might get away with a grizzly as a best friend.
He's just a really big guy who doesn't know his own power and craves salmon and berries.
The ultimate tree hugger!
