A grizzly intent on a little mayhem can maintain 25 mph. How fast can
you move off his territory?
I thought it was local humor but I saw a modified version on Borgen, the
Danish TV series. Two guys a hiking and one wonders if they can outrun a
bear if they meet one. His partners says "I don't have to run faster
than a bear, I just have to run faster than you."
Then there are dogs. When you see your dog running down the trail toward
you, you can assume he just found a new BFF and is bringing him back to
meet you. That's when a gun comes in handy. You shoot the dog and beat
feet in the other direction.
By the way: http://www.bearsmart.com/about-bears/dispelling-myths/
" A predatory bear usually stalks its prey and attacks from behind. It
is often silent and the bear does not exhibit any defensive behaviors
like huffing or slapping the ground. Its ears may be laid back and its
head held low, with its intent focused directly on you"
On second thought, please visit the US. I've got camping gear you can
borrow and I'll even drive you up to Glacier National Park or
Yellowstone, take your pick.

Most UK residents and Europeans in general do not even understand the
concept of "wilderness". The same might even be said for a lot of
people in the North East US.
Perhaps Mr Mckaw should take a walk in the woods in Alaska or even
Montana. He might get a chance to see a grizzly and see if he can talk
the bear into believing that he is leaving in a timely manner.
The same thing might be true in South East Washington DC tho.
I know he says we should simply eliminate guns but that ship sailed
long ago. We can't even eliminate drugs and we spend about $1.2
billion a year trying. How would you ever make guns go away and the
last to give them would be the ones who cause the most trouble with
Definitely not romantic, but most assuredly interesting. Alaska was
also the first place I saw a wolverine, up close and personal. I
thought it was cute, which it is, but definitely not a creature to
You're responding to a well know troll. See info:
Trolls only show up to cause trouble:
Bite My Shiny Metal Ass
Col. Edmund Burke
Groups they come from and cross post from:
Cross posting only attracts the trolls and then they never leave.
If you want your REPAIR group back - STOP FEEDING THESE TROLLS.
IGNORE THEM AND THEY WILL GO AWAY.
Wolverines? Nah, they're just characters from 'Red Dawn'. Go for the
original. The remake has them cavorting around a hardwood forest
supposedly near Spokane, WA. If there's a hardwood forest anywhere in
eastern Washington I've missed it. (It was mostly filmed in Michigan)
Now they would rip you apart if cornered.
We have so many badgers here that they cull them regularly and not just
because the farmers think that they spread TB.
There are several Sets about 200 yards from our house.
There have been reports of wolverines around here but I've never seen
one, which is just fine with me. Think of a weasel on steroids the size
of a mid-range dog, and with a weasel's desire to kill anything that moves.
