This one could have had a different ending.

I still think that a 50 cal could give them a run for the money...

Bears are so cute.


Here's one without its fur.

Makes me want to run right up to one and hug it. ;-)

Nature-lover Mr Kazlowski said he wanted to release the book to reveal the softer side of the creature that is normally hidden from view. He said: 'My message is pretty simple - it's that these animals are not cold blooded killers. We can peacefully coexist with bears, and enjoy a richer world with the diversity in species they offer us."

Yeah. I recall another 'nature-lover' who wanted to prove how we can peacefully coexist with grizzlies... and then one ate him and his girlfriend for a midnight snack.

Grizzly Bears...the gentle hosts of the friendly forest.

I was working on a Trail Crew for the US Forest Service clearing trail on the CC Divide. I came upon a tree across the trail where some Huckleberry bushes had grown up. I set the chainsaw down to start it. I gave it a pull and the Huckleberry bushes exploded! A bear came boiling out. I did what all Forest Service employees are taught not to do when encountering a bear, and ran screaming down the trail. Fortunately, the bear went the opposite direction. I made it down to where the other “Trail Ape” was working. I told him what had happened. He asked me if the chainsaw was OK. I thought that was a silly question, but when we got back up to where the fallen tree was, the chainsaw was gone. A week later, it turned up in a pawn shop in Kalispell. The bear pawned it to buy some smokes. I’m glad I didn’t drop the pickup keys.

Pictures are really fantastic. I am scared to death of grizzlies but want to see Alaska more.

Noticed under one pic of a polar bear that their numbers are dwindling due to losing the polar ice, but then they show one picture of a family of three. Hmmmm.

Great images.

Kazlowski has his bears....Swamp Sniper has his birds.

I still think the photos obtained a few years ago of a Yellowstone Grizzly chasing a wounded bison are some of the most stunning wildlife photos ever taken. I hope the photographer was able to sell them for at least enough to replace the underwear he must have ruined when he took them...

The caption under one pic says; "Numbers of the species are very low as polar ice continues to melt." Total BS Glowbull Warming hoax lie.

Book: Polar bear population on the rise

“There are far more polar bears alive today than there were 40 years ago. … In 1973, there was a global hunting ban. So once hunting was dramatically reduced, the population exploded,” Mr. Unger said.

Currently, there are an estimated 20,000 to 25,000 polar bears worldwide, and that number has increased steadily in the past 40 years since Canada, Denmark, Greenland, Norway, the United States and the former U.S.S.R. signed the International Agreement on the Conservation of Polar Bears in 1973.
