Ya know, all kidding aside, that fellow looks like he's in real trouble! Gadzooks! Those bears can really move!!! Calculating what that guy has to do to avoid being eaten (open the door, climb in and close it) I think he's in deep doo doo.

Diane, any word on his fate?

Yes, those Polars are fast. Calculating the distance to the door, versus the closure ratio (Gosh!!! that calculus comes in handy sometimes!!!) [Linked Image]I'd say he never reached the steering wheel [Linked Image]

If you look at the two pictures, the bear has gone around the front of the vehicle and traveled most of the distance down the left side while the human has barely traveled the length of the back! True, the bear has two turns to make, but that whole thing does not look good at all. Bears can turn on a dime ... at full speed no less!!!

After the bear got down from the front of the car, I'll bet the guy didn't know which way he was heading until he came around the front. Bear meat, that's what he is and all the while, his buddy, standing there taking pictures. Nice friend. :-) Getting pics of his buddy turning into mince meat. Boy, talk about "bearing it all."

Looks like the article starts here (click on the above http thingy), but when you get to this website, just click on "more pics and story here" (click on the here) it will take you to all the pictures and tells the story!

A fun read! Fun for us, not entirely for him!!!!

Whew! He was able to reach a neighboring unlocked truck and take refuge inside nursing over a hundred scratches. The guy was really lucky.

The bear probably thought he had Al Gore offering himself as endangered polar bear sustenance.

If he was unarmed, the cameraman did exactly the right thing. He shot with what he had.

Yikes! That fellow sure was fortunate to have an unlocked truck nearby. That blog comment had it right. It's downright foolish to travel in that country without a large caliber firearm.

Well, I think that fellow could have used this white "flag" . . . if she hadn't ripped it up first!

I'm sure the bear would have stopped in it's tracks if it saw the "white" flag waving, Right? wink

I wouldn't count on it. Neither "surrender" nor "mercy" are in a hungry bear's vocabulary. [Linked Image]

Yessssssss !!!!

It's so nice and warm outside today, I think it's time to turn the barbeque on and throw some hamburgers on it! I just love this picture! It's a hamburger bed!

We actually aren't having hamburgers tonight! We are having barbequed smokies! Hope there aren't any bears near by! wink

Oh, yeah, it's a well-known fact that barbequed smokies are a powerful bear attractant. smirk
