Thread Name: BS: Bear Encounters Part Two
Subject: RE: BS: Bear Encounters Part Two
The timing of this thread was pretty good.

Since it started I have seen, on UK TV. A movie called The Edge, with Anthony Hopkins killing a rather unfriendy Kodiak bear with a sharpened twig.

A vet being taken close-up to bears and their cubs, by a very brave survivor of a grizzly attack. He had in effect half of his face eaten off but still seemed willing to approach them. They were suprised by another party, and were very lucky it was not the other way around. This was a programme on the world's most dangerous animals. There seems to be one rather serious omission to this list?

A soap star being filmed in Alaska, who I am sure would have reduced the grizzly population by one, with the gun supplied for his protection. If the bears had been foolish enough to appear anywhere near him. The huge fresh tracks close to his tent which terrified our hero, evidenced that they were about but, far too sensible to make an appearance.
