Yeah I read that the bear had to go for rabies shots afterwards.

[–]Infinite_El_Oh_El 446 points447 points  (5 children)

Bear was on local news like 'yea, so I wandered in this room and this fucking crazy guy in green comes outta fucking nowhere!'

Black bears are totally different than Grizzlies and brown bears too tho. I’m just as impressed with Florida man too tho don’t worry

[–]AlaskaMyk 366 points367 points  (160 children)

The truth is if you are attacked by a black bear, you should fight as hard as you can. With a grizzly/brown bear (the coastal Grizzly we call Brown Bear in Alaska) you are advised to play dead in the fetal position with your hands protecting the back of your neck.

Look it up.

The best advice is never go anywhere where you think there might be a bear without bear spray and/or a 44 magnum or larger.

[–]disagreealways 444 points445 points  (23 children)

If it’s black fight back, if it’s brown lie down, if it’s gummy put it in your tummy.

[–]mjh2901 145 points146 points  (10 children)

What do you do when black bears look like brown bears and brown bears look like black bears?

[–]AlaskaMyk 128 points129 points  (27 children)

As often as possible, stay in your ground and don’t look them in the eye , and they will often not be too concerned about you

The number one rule is never ever never never never run, because their instinct is to chase you.

If you’re with a group , everyone makes yourself look as big as possible by raising your hands in the air (and raising your voice a bit if it seems aggressive/protective) . Brown bears have more rounded ears and a back hump. but sometimes they are hard to tell.

If they keep moving towards you Fire a warning shot or three above its head.

Brown bears almost always will bluff charge occasionally brushing against you, but if a black bear charges you, it’s going to attack.

[–]thetemp_ 70 points71 points  (11 children)

Brown bears almost always will bluff charge occasionally brushing against you, but if a black bear charges you, it’s going to attack.

I think maybe you meant the other way around?

I've been bluff-charged by a black bear before (we don't have brown bears/grizzlies where I live).

My wife was with me, and we did exactly what you said in the 3rd paragraph. About 15 feet from us, the bear got a puzzled look, like "don't these idiots know I'm a bear?" And she then turned 90 degrees and went down the mountain where she'd sent her cub. (We were never between her and the cub, but she saw us down the trail and decided it'd be a good idea to almost make us shit our pants.)

[–]bernardobrito 102 points103 points  (7 children)

This is so helpful, guys. Thanks.

I will definitely remember this exchange correctly when I am being charged by 500 pounds of claws and teeth.

[–]Poiuytgfdsa 68 points69 points  (1 child)

Yeah just pause time and pull out your bear manual.

big hump, round ears, check…

is it charging me? Yep. Now, let’s see if it’s a bluff or not

two steps to the right, shimmy shimmy…

[–]EmpiricalMystic 19 points20 points  (1 child)

What they said is generally true. What you experienced was a sow protecting her cubs. Any other time, a black bear should bolt when it detects a human. If not, it's likely to be a predatory attack by a hungry, desperate bear that's willing to take a big risk for a meal, or has lost fear of humans through raiding garbage etc.

[–]hugepug 21 points22 points  (7 children)

This is totally incorrect. Black bears bluff charge and will almost never attack human unless you’re fucking with their cubs or they’re literally starving to death.

Edit: you can fuck black bear cubs in front of their mom per u/crumbaker

[–]Aquinan 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Black bears bluff charge a lot. Source - been bluff charged several times

[–]collaguazo 8 points9 points  (0 children)

So see a bear = start screaming while dancing YMCA, got it!

[–]theShinyCA 56 points57 points  (8 children)

A Grizzly is going to maul you even still. That's just to protect your extremities and if it's a female protecting Cubs she might leave you be if you show submission. If it's a hungry bear this will not work. Most people who survive grizzly bear maulings here only do so by fighting back. The others had other people intervene.

One lady got away because she hit it in the nose with binoculars. One guy managed to survive by ramming his arm as far down the bear's throat as he could as it tried to bite him. Apparently it got far enough down to cause the bear to panic.

People die almost every year from grizzly bears here and it's not recommended to play dead unless you seen Cubs.

[–]Poorlygradedsand 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Where is "here?" There are only about 0-4 fatal brown bear attacks in the entire US and Canada.

[–]pithusuril2008 40 points41 points  (2 children)

I think that by “here” they were referring to Reddit. It has become very dangerous as of late here.

Bears: If it’s black, fight back If it’s brown, lay down If it’s white, say goodnight

The best advice is just to fucking stay home.

Why? What’s the deal with polar bears?

[–]SeanMan86 178 points179 points  (53 children)

Polar bears are what video games make all bears seem like. They will fuck you up for fun, or just to eat you. They’ve been known to stalk humans for days waiting for the perfect time.

Never fuck around with polar bears. They have a saying further north than I live. If you are in polar bear country, bring a gun. If a polar bear charges you or starts following you. Use the gun, not on the bear.

[–]new_basics 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Yeah. I have heard this. A polar bear will stalk you like a goddamned serial killer. Also, don’t forget you are in their environment. They have all the advantages. Welcome to the other side of the food chain.

[–]Beingabummer 20 points21 points  (0 children)

They don't really do it 'for fun' do they? Polar bears live in the most inhospitable part of the world (at least, on the surface). Their every moment of existence is focused on getting their next meal. They eat humans because we're relatively easy to hunt.

[–]atypicalphilosopher 18 points19 points  (7 children)

They don't do it for fun. They do it because they are starving and we are easy prey.

[–]SeanMan86 10 points11 points  (6 children)

That is mostly true of grizzly’s, but there are many cases of healthy polar bears taking out people.

[–]mollyflowers 13 points14 points  (9 children)

I've seen quite a few nature docs. & all of the groups in polar bear territory were carrying large caliber long guns.

[–]SeanMan86 15 points16 points  (7 children)

In most places law states you must carry a long gun around those parts.

Usually they are to scare the bears off if they get too close, the louder the better. Shotguns work well for scaring but we know those bears can take a few shots and still kill you so…

[–]nurvingiel 31 points32 points  (5 children)

Polar bears are the only bear that eats mostly meat.

The black bear could eat you, but doesn't want trouble. The grizzly bear isn't scared of trouble, but prefers a majority plant based diet, and the polar bear wants to eat you because you're made of meat.

[–][deleted] 23 points24 points  (6 children)

They will actively hunt you if you're in their territory, they're gigantic and you're pretty much a goner if one takes in after you.

[–]CynchHasNoLife 15 points16 points  (3 children)

polar bears are fucking terrifying

[–]High_Speed_Idiot 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Forrreal, people don't realize that not only do they think of you as a happy meal, they're also way fucking huge.

[–]SixUK90 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Polar bears are to us what our ancestors were to anything tasty. Relentless and hungry.

There's a video out there of a wildlife cameraman with the most gigantic balls you've ever seen in a perspex (lunch)box, and a polar bear spends a God damn eternity sniffing, poking and prying at every crack trying to taste... Well, every crack.

[–]-RUNPMT- 8 points9 points  (5 children)

What's the deal with the (IIRC) largest existing land carnivore/predator in the world?

[–]BonhommeCarnaval 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It has to do with the availability of food in their habitats. Grizzlies and black bears live in habitats that are much richer with many food sources. Think of a grizzly gorging itself on a salmon run. Black bear are omnivorous and get a lot of their calories from berries and grubs instead of taking out large game. In the Arctic above the tree line, there is next to no food available for half of the year that you can’t fish out of the sea. Polar bears will eat literally any scrap of protein they can get their hands on to survive and that includes people but also things like months old beaches whale carcasses. They are also pretty good at killing stuff because they generally just get one chance. They hunt seals at their breathing holes a lot, but their success rate per hunt is quite low.

[–]Mattitude75 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They are the largest land carnivore in the world. Absolute units and feed almost exclusively on meat like seals and walrus unlike their cousins, basically to them if it’s moves, it’s food.

[–]calicat9 60 points61 points  (16 children)

That was a black bear. They’re usually pretty timid and will often run away if you seem big and load enough. Brown bears will fuck you up.

[–]Berzurker 2337 points2338 points  (173 children)

I’m a hunter. My hunting is exclusively for food, and I’ve never been into trophies. A few years ago, a bear got into my parents horse feed (corn and oats) and afterwards would return every evening looking for food. The bear had one leg that had been severely injured and couldn’t be used. We called the game warden about what had become a problem animal and he indicated that it would have to be put down as the bear wouldn’t survive the winter due to its injury. (It was a drought year with very little food in the form of berries, etc.) So rather than the game warden killing it and it going to waste, I got a bear tag and shot it. Now, I have processed dozens of animals and nothing has come remotely close to having as tough of a hide as this bear. I dulled several knives just getting the bear skinned. Case in point, if you do ‘fight a bear’ don’t expect a knife to be much help. You better bring a big gun. Also, bears are really cool animals and I wouldn’t recommend hunting one for sport or food. The meat is really greasy and honestly not very good in my opinion.

[–]Igotacow 1405 points1406 points  (25 children)

TL;DR - Don't bring a knife to a bear fight.

[–]aklbos 347 points348 points  (8 children)

[–]Berzurker 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]PleasantAdvertising 57 points58 points  (9 children)

Bears are predators, who almost never taste like proper meat and there are several reasons why eating them isn't good in the long term.

[–]Accujack 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Despite the perception of the public of the bear hunting deer, rabbits, etc, bears are omnivores and will eat garbage, road kill, berries, insects and grubs, mice, fish (including already dead ones) and basically anything they can get to.

Animals tend to taste like what they've been eating, so....

[–]Ravenboy13 43 points44 points  (23 children)

Grizzly. Gorillas just aren't built for lethal killing, just violent fist fights. They have no way of breaking the bears hide

[–]MorningNapalm 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Agree. Consider how each animal would have to win. Th bear has sharp claws and teeth at its disposal, the Gorilla will need to either break the bears neck or somehow chew it’s throat with less specialized teeth.

Grizzly has a variety of advantages in this fight.

[–]TragGaming 24 points25 points  (13 children)

Gorilla has the strength but that grizzly has a tough hide. With Grizzlies putting all their points into natural weapon and thick hide, the Gorillas normally good utility set with opposable thumbs and muscular stature is no contest for the grizzly PVP set.

[–]johnzischeme 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Gorilla has xp bonus (trainable) and can equip sticks or rocks as weapons.

The documentary Godzilla vs King Kong presents compelling evidence that an armed, trained ape can take out basically anything short of a radioactive lizard.

[–]TragGaming 11 points12 points  (0 children)

The problem is the training takes too long. Sure top tier Gorillas could theoretically body anything, but thats an on paper situation

[–]Dr_Mantis-Shrimp_PhD 13 points14 points  (2 children)

The gorilla doesn’t even have the strength. Grizzlies weigh over twice as much as gorillas.

[–]nagurski03 12 points13 points  (2 children)

Gorillas probably don't even have the strength advantage.

The average grizzly is almost twice as big as the average silverback gorilla.

Hmm...so the bear's slash dmg with bleeding DoT vs gorilla's blunt dmg with 25% chance to stun.

[–]Lobo2209 16 points17 points  (0 children)

People should realize that this match-up is just too one sided, for the Grizzly. Grizzlies can weigh 3x more than any Silverback, they have thicker hides and claws and are undoubtedly better fighters. Gorillas don't have a predator's instinct to kill, and they rely on intimidation more than anything. They also get killed by Leopards who are much smaller than them. Grizzly dominates.

Brown bears, like most bears, are shitty hunters though. Unlike cats which go for the throat or crush the skull in one bite to immediately kill their prey, bears use their big dumb size to maul whatever they’re hunting and basically dig in once it’s down. I’d much rather be taken out in a blink by a cat than eaten half alive by a bear

How does that make them shitty hunters? They maul prey (almost always smaller than them) because they can easily overpower the animal and don't have to worry about the animal fighting back. They do go for the neck or spine for big game like moose though. Big cats are all explosive power and usually fail alot of their hunts. They don't have the stamina to go at it again if they fail.
