 I dont know if this has been posted or not or even its real.
 
 
 
Big Bear shot in the Saddle Hills, Alberta, Sept 20/2010        

        These two gents were calling elk in the Saddle Hills south of Woking when this big guy slipped in on the caller.  The

        shooter spotted the bear 8 yards from the caller and dropped him with 5 shots out of his 338 Rem Mag..
        Farmers in the area knew about the bear but weren’t able to track it after it had killed 3 horses, 5 cows, 13 sheep and a pen
        full of chickens on  different farms in the area.

        Fish and wildlife had bear traps set up in the area but noticed on surveillance video that whenever he would enter a trap, his
        hump would hit the top of the culvert trap, slowing him enough that the trap door would whack him on the head before he
        was all the way in.
        Check out the scar tissue on his face…..  

        

        Bear weighed just under 1300 pounds and would have stood 11 ¾ feet tall on its hind legs…..

Good photoshop job I think. I have also seen the pics before. I think some gameranger shot it. I will try some Googling.
 
Google shows a similiar bear shot in Alaska by a game ranger in 2006. The pics are very different though, so this could be true.

btw guys story come from an email a really friend sent me so thanks Claus.
 Like I said I don't know how true it is. The one pic where the bear is on his back is what throws me off kind of cartoony looking. As for the size if u look @ how wide his paws are  turn the incs in to feet & u can pretty close to how tall he is, I've also heard that about the length of the back paw. As for believing a bear can be this big I say HELL YES!!!! they can, look Bart the bear from all the movie (THE EDGE). He was a big as$ bear I bet close to that 11ft++ mark. All I know I'd hate to come across one that big. Big Smile

did a little research last night--appears bear was shot in Alaska but story doesn't match either--2007 on an island in Alaska--not Kodiak

  Oh,I can believe the size.  Read an article by Ross Seyfried where he asked Morris Taliffson (Pinell & Taliffson) about how big the coastal browns got back when it was prime hunting for them.  He said "You wouldn't believe it".  This was after they had taken a 10 1/2 footer.

Bart the Bear was the greatest Bear actor ever!  The Great Outdoors, Legends of the Fall, The Bear, The Edge: all classics.  Bart was a huge bear, close to 1500 pounds, but even he was only 9 1/2 feet tall.  Bart was a Kodiak Grizzly, and inland Grizzlies in Alberta, (and Montana) are quite a bit smaller, but still impressive.  These pics look like a Coastal Grizzly or Kodiak from AK.

This story below is a grizzly at 14 ft.
 

The 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 charged him from about 50 yards away. The guy emptied his 7mm Magnum semi-automatic rifle into the bear and it dropped a few feet from him. The big bear was still alive so he reloaded and shot it several times in the head.

The bear was just over one thousand six hundred pounds It stood 12′ 6″ high at the shoulder, 14′ to the top of his head. It’s the largest grizzly bear ever recorded in the world.

Of course, the Alaska Fish and Wildlife Commission did not let him keep it as a trophy, but the bear will be stuffed and mounted, and placed on display at the Anchorage airport to remind tourists of the risks involved when in the wild.

Based on the contents of the bears stomach, the Fish and Wildlife Commission established the bear had killed at least two humans in the past 72 hours including a missing hiker

That happen about 4 to 7 years ago. I remember reading the deal in a hunting mag @ the time it happen , they posted few  pics of the missing hiker. (wasnt pretty)
