Zoo attendees in Billings, Mont., were treated to a scene of destruction Saturday as grizzly bears Bruno and Ozzy were let loose in a fake campsite to do what bears do in the woods. The bears shredded a tent, a sleeping bag, and chairs; knocked over and tore through a garbage can; and ripped into food containers. The only thing that survived was a bear-proof cooler that neither bruin could manage to get into.
The purpose of the demonstration was to allow Bruno and Ozzy to work through some deep emotional issues both had carried since childhood. OK...
The real reason for the show was to demonstrate how most bear-proof items aren’t bear proof at all.
Any shot with a rifle at 1,000 yards requires a little luck. But, the guys who posted this video have a series of clips on long-range coyote shooting to prove they know what they're doing.
This shot was made at 1,020 yards and the video was published to YouTube last year. There's plenty of reason to debate the ethics of long-range hunting, but it's also important to recognize the amount of skill that goes into this level or marksmanship.
A rabid female wolf tore through the streets of Tiberias last week injuring at least 11 people, according to Haaretz.com.
The attacks began in the morning and continued for hours into the afternoon, until police were finally able to corner and kill the animal. The injured were immediately taken to a nearby hospital to be treated for rabies.
It’s the moment every dangerous game hunter dreads could happen … A charge.
A hunter in Sweden faced such a moment when a Eurasian boar flanked him from the left, according to the individual that posted the video. The hunter had barely enough time to register the charge let alone take aim. Fortunately the instinct of the hunter proved true and he stopped the charge literally at his feet.
This video comes from Garrett Brothers Outfitting and is a great example of just how strong black bears really are. The young bear scales a tree and then hangs on the rope for way longer than what we expect.
The quote at the end of the video says it all: "That was amazing, eh?"
A friend in New Hampshire, Mike Romano, emailed us this morning with a fascinating story and two intriguing photos. Here’s his tale:
“So Friday morning we woke up to several of our horse fences broken down and couldn't figure out what really happened to them until I saw the attached Saturday afternoon. I had 9 deer in my driveway on and off most of the day Saturday, but in the afternoon I saw they were on high alert, so I looked out my side window and saw this.”
