Big Bear - (Warning! Hunting pictures attached)
Okay everyone, I got this emailed from a friend who is visiting her family in alaska....just wanted to share it with everyone and get some opinions.....
"This is real! Take a look at the pictures!!
Here is the bear story. Big frickin' bear dude. Love, Bran
>How would you deer hunters like to run into one of these? ? ?
> BEAR STORY
> The downloaded pictures are of a man who works for
>the US Forest Service in Alaska and his trophy bear.
> He was out deer hunting last week when a large grizzly bear

>The big bear was still alive so he reloaded and shot it several times in

Personally I feel really sorry for the bear...but I guess if it's true he'd ate a person then something needed to be done....but man, shouldn't these people in the Alaskan wild be more careful or something....I dont know I guess I'm just troubled by it...
