Biggest grizzly ever


The first two pictures are of a guy who works for the US Forest Service in Alaska and his trophy bear. He was out deer hunting when a large grizzly bear charged him From about 50 yards away. The guy unloaded his 7mm Mag semi-automatic Rifle into the bear and it dropped a  few feet from him. The big bear was still alive so he reloaded and shot  it several times in the head. The bear was just over one thousand six  hundred pounds. It stood 12'6" high at the shoulder & 14' to the top of  his head. It's the largest Grizzly bear ever recorded in the world.

Of course, the Alaska Fish and wildlife Commission did not let him keep it as a trophy, but the bear will be stuffed, mounted & placed on display  at the Anchorage  airport (to remind Tourist's of the risks involved  when in the wild).

Based on the contents of the bears stomach, the Fish and Wildlife Commission established the bear had killed at least two humans in  the Past 72 hours. His last meal was the unlucky nature buff  in  the third picture. The US Forest Service, backtracking from where the bear had originated, found the hiker's 38-caliber pistol emptied.Not far from the Pistol was the remains of the hiker. The other body has not been found. They ultimately found four 38 caliber slugs along with twelve 7mm slugs inside The bear's dead body.

Although the hiker fired six shots and managed to hit the grizzly with four shots it only wounded the bear - and probably Angered it. The bear killed the hiker an estimated two days prior to The bear's own death
by the gun of  the Forest Service worker. Think about this - If you are an average size man; You would be level with the bear's belly button when he stood upright, the bear would look you In the eye when it walked on all fours! To give additional perspective,consider that this particular bear, standing on its hind legs, could walk up to an average single story house and look over the roof, or walk up To a two story house and look in the bedroom windows.
