An unidentified Alaska man shot and killed a brown bear sow Thursday after the animal mauled him.
The Alaska Department of Fish and Game assistant area wildlife biologist Dave Battle stated that the Eagle River man and his unleashed dogs were walking on a dirt road off of Hiland Road. The dogs disappeared into the woods, then came running back to their owner with a grizzly right behind them. The 200-pound sow attacked the man, and he responded with three shots from his .44 Magnum.
British angler Daniel Bennett reeled in the largest known fish ever caught from the British shoreline last week. Although the monster catch tops all the current records, it didn't meet the official requirements to make the books.

Dolphin? Yellowtails? Huge schools of football yellowfin tuna? Instead of hitting the Sea of Cortez or Cabo San Lucas to target these species, join the El Niño buzz and try five miles off the coast of California.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Service predicted that El Niño would bring these tropical and sub-tropical species closer to the California coast by August, but fisherman there are already finding them within casting distance.
In past years the Pacific branch of the USFWS has taken deliberate steps to restore native fish species to Oregon waters. The agency proposed delisting the Oregon chub from its threatened status earlier this year, making it the first fish to escape the Endangered Species List without going extinct. Now the latest fish on its priority list to receive attention is the bull trout, which wildlife officials began reintroducing to Oregon’s Clackamas River in 2011.
USFWS shared a stunning video detailing the history and progress of the trout’s restoration on its Facebook page Tuesday. The clip includes beautiful underwater shots of bull trout and their habitat, along with interviews from the wildlife officials who’ve been restoring the trout to their historic waters.
