"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".....


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.

Mr. Sherman says just the opposite of you. Who am I to believe, you or him?
What a question! You are a retard and Mr. Sherman always makes sure of his
facts before spouting off. The subspecies is the grizz, not the brown.

The bear was sufficiently far enough away that walking away from it would
have been a retarded thing to do. It is best to run when running is called
for. It is wonderful to observe all the wild life experts who mange to get
themselves killed or mauled because they think they know more than they do.
Anyone who generalizes about bear behavior is a fool. Hell Bells, even the
bear does not know what it is going to do!

You really are the moron of the decade! Full of sound and fury and
signifying nothing. The only grizzly bear "expert" with a chance of
being killed is you.

Not necessary - Cowardly Ed will die of fright if he goes out unarmed
and sees a cherrystone clam.
