Re: Need Help With Grizzly Bear Question
That story you got told is PURE 100% BS!!
That guy in the pic with the Bear is Ted, works for the Air Force, shot it on Hinchenbrook Island and the bear was no where near that big, period. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
He also kept the bear.
It will not be in the airport.
It killed nobody.
It never charged him.
No where near the largest Bear in the world.
Bear squared somewhere around 10'2" if I remember right, a bit taller than that if it stood up is all. Still a big Bear though.
I have an email from a newspaper reporter up here, Peter Porko, who also had his facts quite mixed up. His article was also meant to clear up the BS stories getting out of hand concerning Ted's Bear, and he still had it way off. I think he said it was 11.5 ft. squared in the article. I'll post his email to me when I get home. I called him on it when I read it and he then contacted the taxidermist to get the details.
My garage has a 14 foot cieling, and that would be a record Bear indeed. Just siting here at my Dad's shop looking at the cieling, which is 12', THAT would be a giant Bear!
