    See above.

    On this point I agree. The guy was stupid. He shouldn't have been there alone. And just because you're a man doesn't render one immune to consequences of stupid decisions. This guy was apparently being a shovelhead.

    That said I also reserve judgement for the bear, although limited in mental faculties they do think and plan accordingly. Most bears leave Badgers alone because they know it is just not worth it. Most of them know that with humans as well - this bear clearly didn't pay attention.

    But back to the man - if he wasn't such an idiot we wouldn't need to kill this bear for future safety.

    Not true, at all. Maybe ego would lead us to believe that, but it has no basis in reality. The next time you encounter a bear or a cougar in the wild, go ahead and tell him to kneel to you and see what happens. You will become lunch.

    No matter what stupid mistake I made the day before, I would not just stroll outside and give myself to the bear or even wait for him to peel open his can of human snacks to get me.

    That is just it.

    I live in the Rockies at about 8500'. We have large numbers of Elk that regularly traverse my property. Along with the Elk come bears and cougars. Fortunately, I don't often meet them, but I see their tracks quite regularly. I have no desire to place myself in a position in which one of them might decide I would be easier to chase down than an Elk.

    Perhaps if I were foolish you'd get your wish. But alas I'm not.

    Man is not sovereign by simply existing. Our physical frame is much too feeble. It is our genius that sets us apart. So sovereignty being a function of intellect, some men are clearly more sovereign than others.

    So returning to the cougar who wouldn't kneel. No, he wouldn't. But he would lay down, by the command of a .357. while our natural weaponry is laughable, our created weaponry is nothing to scoff at.

    That is a fair point. Also one of the reasons I take a dog with me to the woods is in going alone - the home will detect the beast long before I can. I might be fairly alert, but a dog's nose and ears are better.

    Attachment 41326

    A man has been rescued after spending a week fighting off a grizzly bear in the Alaskan wilderness. With injuries to his leg and torso, and running on a mixture of adrenaline, sleep deprivation and just two remaining rounds of ammunition for his pistol, he was finally spotted by a Coast Guard pilot, Lieutenant Commander Jared Carbajal.
    While flying between the Alaskan cities of Kotzebue and Nome, a Coast Guard helicopter crew spotted an SOS sign on top of a shack. Circling back over the remote mining camp, they found a man waving his hands in the air.

    Jessee said that after firing a shot at the bear with his pistol, he escaped to his cabin. He told the newspaper that the bear attacked the cabin walls, windows and doors. "There was no doubt about it: The bear was trying to get into my cabin," Jessee said. "I don't know why it was so aggressive. Maybe it had cubs nearby."

    I'm glad our bears where I live are black bears. That may sound racist and to tell the truth it is based on the black bear's reputation of behaving more like a giant racoon . Unless and until you threten it, it's young or it's territory. Thay have awesome strength and can and have killed humans. So we respect them and they generally don't eat us. Our garbage and ungarded coolers while camping are a different story.
    But grizzlies do occasionally hunt people.
