What an insightful Story.... Uncle Eddie, the Great Outdoorsman, sees a
Rocky Mountain Brown Bear, and tells everyone to "Run for their
lives".... That is exactly the WRONG thing to do when meeting a Brown
Bear in the bush.... it is just to [too] bad that he didn't munch you....
Eddie the Great DUFUS.....


"you" has got grizzly bears confused with teddy bears. Why does this not
surprise me? Yea, it is ever the hallmark of idiots to confuse teddy bears
with grizzly bears. He probably thinks rattlesnakes are just big worms too.

Eddie the Great Dufus responds... with more BS... Hey Eddie, I live in
Coastal Brown Bear country, out in the bush of alaska, and have Brownies
as neighbors. My Brown Bear neighbors can out run ANY human, that ever
lived, on the order of two to one... so running is just plain STUPID....
You are so far off the accepted way to deal with Brown Bear encounters,
as to be negligent... Good thing you stay in your Hermit Hole, and do
not venture into Brown Bear country much, otherwise we would hear about
Eddie the Great Dufus, being munched, but the world would class that as
"No Great Loss".....


Ed is old, and probably not very tasty to a bear.

I have never seen a Brown Bear in my life (except on TV of course), but I
have seen a few grizzly bears. My little story referenced grizzly bears. Why
was "YOU" bothering me about Brown Bears? Obviously my charisma is
irresistible to one and all!

The grizzly bear (Ursus arctos horribilis) is a subspecies of the brown
bear (Ursus arctos).

Ed Dolan is a misanthrope, which is a subspecies of hermit.

I wish I were a subspecies. The human species broadly speaking is totally
disgusting and revolting. I would rather have been a tiger ... or a lone
eagle. The human mostly closely resembles the chimpanzee. All such social
animals belong in Hell where they can pick at one another for all eternity.

No "Brown" bears in the lower 48, which are a subspecies of grizz
(Ursus Arctos). We have Grizz in Yellowstone, Idaho, the Mission Mts,
Bob Marshall Wilderness and Glacier; maybe some in far northeastern
Washington state and the North Cascades; and black bear many places;
that's it. No grizz in Colorado (to speak of) in decades.

You don't run away from either one; you cannot outrun either, and both
have a modest chase instinct. With a grizz, you respectfully walk
away backwards gently, not meeting his gaze, and talking evenly. With
a black bear, you generally do the same, if you feel like it, although
he's likely to run before you have the chance. I've never had trouble
with either variety. Ed, however, makes his own trouble so he can
talk about it afterwards online...'cause he's a 'tard :-D.

I think you mean the opposite.

(Ursus Arctos). We have Grizz in Yellowstone, Idaho, the Mission Mts,
Bob Marshall Wilderness and Glacier; maybe some in far northeastern
Washington state and the North Cascades; and black bear many places;
that's it. No grizz in Colorado (to speak of) in decades.

This advice is wrong. Ed should go to Kodiak Island in the spring, and
whack a brown bear cub with a stick.
