RE: Biggest bear ever recorded!
after some research...
Thanks to our readers, the truth about these pictures has been found. The facts are a little different from the original eRumor, but the pictures do record the results of a true hunt and are real.
The original pictures lacked the label linking them with hunting-pictures.com, but that is where the pictures reside. They were posted by a hunter who used the nickname Dalliwacker, on www.assaultweb.net, but who is, according to published articles, Jim Urban. He says that the bear was actually ten feet high and weighed between 1,000 and 1,200 pounds. He says the bear did not stand up then drop down and charge. It showed no aggression at all. He also says the bear was not shot on Hitchenbrook Island but, like all good hunters, he won't be specific about where he got it <smile>.
The version of the eRumor that claims the bear was a killer and was shot by a forest service employee are false.
and some more research about bears is there are some that have recorded over 2,000lbs and the weight of the bear killed here is the average weight of a polar bear(adult male).
