    Post A man who tried to fight a grizzly bear in Banff National Park is fined $4,000...

    A man who tried to fight a grizzly bear in Banff National Park is fined $4,000...

    "I think the judge said it best, when an individual creates this kind of dangerous situation with a bear, when they charge at him, when they throw rocks at him when they cause him to run into the bush, you are going to create an aggressive animal that obviously has the ability to do a lot of harm to humans and the public in general."

    It's not every day a man tries to fight a grizzly bear.
    But it appears that is what happened in Banff National Park in 2015 when Devin Mitsuing, 35, got out of his truck shirtless and began shouting at the young grizzly while in a "boxing stance" before charging at it, according to an eyewitness to the incident. Caught on camera by a couple of nearby photographers, who were taking pictures of the lone grazing grizzly on Highway 93 and called RCMP after the incident, Mitsuing was later located in Radium, B.C. by RCMP and a Park Warden and charged under the National Parks Act, for disturbing wildlife in a national park.
    After two previous missed court dates, the case finally came to trial in the Canmore Provincial Courthouse Friday (Sept. 13) morning with Judge George Gaschler finding the Saskatchewan man guilty and imposing a $4,000 fine. "It is abundantly clear this is a disturbance of a grizzly bear and I find [Mr. Mitsuing] guilty," Judge Gaschler said.

    That's how innocent animals end up dead, because of stupid people.

    He can't be that lucky, every time.

    He got off light in terms of the fine. I would put money on the last words he said to his buddy before the incident being, "Hey, watch this!"

    I can't tell you how many catastrophic injuries or death cases I've had where one of the witnesses has said that the injured or decedent said: "Hey, watch this!"

    I'll bet "Hold my beer" is high on the list, as well.
