This was sent to me quite a while back and I ran across it today. Can you imagine having this beast charging towards you??? Yikes!!! :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: This bear was killed down on Hitchenbrook Island by an airman stationed at Elmendorf. The bear measured 12' 6" and was estimated at over 1600lbs. The guy was walking to his hunting area and the bear stood up only 35 yards away. The bear dropped down and went straight for him. He emptied his gun and the bear fell 10 yards from him.
