    Killer Bear Captured-16

    by

     

    The mother grizzly that attacked and killed a camper and injured two others outside of Yellowstone National Park was captured on Thursday and will be euthanized. However the 400-pound sow’s three cubs have been sentenced to a gentler fate. Wildlife officials said on Friday morning that the cubs would be sent to zoos and were destined for a life in captivity. All of the three cubs have already been trapped.

    Officials are awaiting DNA results to make sure they have the right bear, but at this point, the evidence seems to be insurmountable. To trap the bear, wildlife officials used pieces of the deceased camper’s tent and sleeping bag as bait. They set the bait in a large trap at the campsite, and it didn’t take long for the bear to return. Then, they left the mother bear in the trap knowing that her cubs wouldn’t go far.

    Fatal Bear Attack Near Yellowstone-19

    by

     

    At 4 a.m. on Wednesday morning at least one bear ravaged a campsite near Yellowstone National Park, killing one man and leaving two others wounded. The other campers fled the site and hid in their cars to escape being attacked. Authorities have not yet released the names of the victims.   

    The attacks occurred at the Soda Butte campground in the Gallatin National Forest.The campground has been shutdown and wildlife officials are still scrambling to figure out exactly what happened.

    "We don't know if it was one bear, two bears, a black bear or grizzly bear," Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks spokesman Ron Aasheim told the Associated Press. "Obviously, the bear's gone now. Will it come back tonight? That's the question.”

    Game Warden Bust Ends in Shootout-17

    by

    For responsible hunters and anglers, a game warden is a welcome member in the outdoor community. Most transactions between a warden and a sportsman go something like this: Any luck today? Yea, we got a couple this morning. Can I see your license? Sure it’s right here. Ok, well enjoy the rest of your day. Thanks, you too.

    But perhaps in a sign of changing times, a game warden’s job has gotten more dangerous, and even deadly. Last week a routine stop by two game wardens in Washington state ended in a car chase and a shootout. Fish and Wildlife officer Chad McGary was checking anglers at Crab Creek when he ran into 18-year-old Garcia Meraz and Meraz’s father who did not have a fishing license. While talking to the two anglers, the game warden heard a clicking sound coming from Meraz’s pocket and he told Meraz to freeze. Instead of complying, Meraz shoved McGary and drew a .45-caliber handgun, pointing it at the warden’s head.

    Jack Hanna Attacked by Grizzly-11

    by

    For years we’ve watched Jack Hanna appear on late night television shows handling exotic animals and wowing crowds, but on a recent hiking trip, Jungle Jack got a little more than even he could handle. Hanna was hiking with his wife in Glacier National Park when they were approached by a mother grizzly bear and her two cubs. They were on a narrow trail with a steep cliff on one side.

    Hanna, a television personality and the director of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, backed down the trail with his wife. They talked loudly and backpedaled down the trail with the grizzlies following close behind when they eventually ran into five more hikers, including a man and his 10-year-old son.

    Paintballs: A New Bear Attractant?-6

    by

    Recently Big Sky Resort in Montana found out the hard way that bears are extremely attracted to paintballs. The resort set up a wooded, 2-acre wargame paintball site and after a few weeks, the bears moved in, according to Kevin Frey, a bear specialist from the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks service. Eight black bears moved in on the site and gobbled up paintballs at all hours of the day. Also, there were a few grizzly bears roaming the immediate area.

    More Wolves in Your Future-13

    by

     

    While the wolf war rages on in the Northern Rockies, a handful of biologists want to take the fight to the national level. The Arizona-based Center for Biological Diversity filed a petition Tuesday with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, requesting that gray wolves stay on the endangered species list until stable populations are reintroduced all around the country.

    The center wants to see more wolves in places like the Great Plains, New England, the California Basin, the Pacific Northwest and Colorado.

    Could a Lawsuit Stop the Carp Invasion?-6

    by

    The fate of the Great Lakes, and its fishery that's worth $7 billion a year, could rest on closing a few locks and gates in Illinois. And, time is running out. 

    That’s what five Attorneys General suggested Monday in the latest lawsuit to keep Asian carp out of the country’s most valuable freshwater fishery. In the suit, five Great Lakes states accuse the United States Army Corps of Engineers and the Chicago water authority of creating a public nuisance by not closing the locks and gates on waters that connect the carp infested Mississippi River and Lake Michigan. Federal law prohibits interstate movement of harmful species.

    Jihad Monkeys-16

    by

    “Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!”

    The day I’ve feared since the first time I saw The Planet of the Apes late one Saturday night on channel 39 at age 11 is almost upon us.  The day when apes will become the dominant species on the planet and humans like you and me will be forced to wear filthy loin cloths, live in cages, and face the threat of scientific experimentation is coming.  Fortunately, Afghanistan will fall to the monkeys before North America does.  That is if everything goes as planned.  And that’s a big if considering we’re talking about “damned dirty apes” raising arms in a jihad against the West.
