Man, that is one impressive specimen. Officials were looking to collar females, and came across this big dude in Great Falls, Montana.

7 foot 6 inches
4 foot neck circumference (yikes!)
3 & 1/2" claws

Man, I would sure hate to run across this guy in the wilderness. LOL

I know that the collars are a important tool, but they are a problem for animals. I have learned a lot about collars.
I personally am disappoint they did collar him.
I wish he had no collar and no need for one.
I wish we were more aware and less insane.
I guess science is forced into a corner because we have taken so much.
sad really.
I would hate to be that bear.
What the F did I do?
stupid collar.

Agree with you junglelord. It's a marvelous creature-leave him be. Humans are always placing their mark and interfering with nature.

Not sure why the collared these bears, but I know they collar black bears to study their movements to see if their eating from human food sources. The data could save this and other bears life someday.

The collar probably has no ill effects on the bear, however, I'm sure once they have the data they will need to tranqulize the bear again to remove the collar. Every time anything is sedated there is always a risk of something going wrong.

They were doing a study on female bears and accidently caught this huge male. He still has growing to do too. Jungle lord why do you hate collars. Please be specific. I think that studying them may save them.

I think its for our protection and the bear and his hide is so thick he doesnt even know its there I bet. In a populated world we live in its nice to know where that big boy is at all times.

My, my, that's one BIG BAD bear...

I just hope no trophy hunter gets him...I'm not a big fan of trophy hunters.

Seven hundred and fifty pounds...

Apparently he's still fairly young, and still growing? Big, big, Bear.
