    These pictures are of a man who works for the
    US Forest Service in Alaska, and his trophy bear.

    He was deer hunting last week when the large grizzly charged him
    from about 50 yards away.
    The guy emptied his 7mm Magnum semi-automatic rifle into
    the bear and it dropped a few feet from him.
    The big bear was still alive so the hunter 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 is the largest grizzly bear ever recorded in the world.

    The Alaska Fish and Wildlife Commission did not let him keep it
    as a trophy, of course; but the bear will be stuffed and mounted,
    and placed on display at the Anchorage airport to remind tourists
    of the risks involved in the wild.

    Analyzing contents of the bears stomach, the Fish and Wildlife Commission
    established the bear had killed at least two humans in the past 72 hours,
    including a hiker missing two days prior to the bear's own death.

    Backtracking from where the bear had originated, the US Forest Service
    found the hiker's emptied 38-caliber pistol.
    Not far from the pistol was the remains of the hiker.
    The other body has not been found.

    Although the hiker fired six shots and managed to hit the grizzly with four
    (that the Service ultimately retrieved, along with twelve 7mm slugs,
    inside the bear's body), it only wounded the bear and probably
    angered it immensely.

    Think about this:

    If you are an average size man, you would be level with the bear's navel
    when he stood upright.
    The bear would look you in the eye when it walked on all fours!
    To give additional perspective, this bear, standing on its hind legs,
    could walk up to an average single story house and look over the roof;
    or stand beside a two story house and look in the upper bedroom windows.
    WOW!
