When a Grizzly charges you, you need an option better than ‘fight or flight’ You need something that will MAKE that bear to break off the charge.
Sweetly begging a bear to go away may be entertaining to the rest of us watching the video if they’re just curious — No really, that’s what one chick in an earlier story was trying to do… until she tried pepper spray, which didn’t help much: The MOST ANNOYING Chick Ever Pepper Sprays GRIZZLY – Grizzly Gets LAST Laugh!
In a situation where there is real danger, you can’t mess around with half-measures.
When a bear is charging, you need something that will actually WORK.
Bear spray? If your life is literally on the line, will you trust that to be enough?
Or … would you rather pull out a shotgun and put an end to the threat?
Now imagine you’ve got that problem… in your own front yard.
His particular strategy is not one we’d recommend, though.
Shooting to scare, and then shooting to maim? Does the phrase ‘wounded animal’ ring any bells?
If you’re going to shoot the animal, at least have the decency to give it a mercifully clean kill.
Canadian officials are investigating a horrific standoff that led to a man shooting a charging grizzly bear in his front yard.
Shocking footage shows Lawrence Michalchuk encountering the mother bear and her three cubs after the group wandered onto his Bella Coola, British Columbia, property.
He had just returned home with his wife after visiting in-laws in the city, according to the video’s caption.
Michalchuk fired two warning shots at the huge beast in an effort to get the animals to flee.
The bear can be seen charging at the man and Michalchuk’s wife can be heard screaming while filming.
The man shoots the bear in the right front leg and sends it stumbling all over itself. The time of the fall gives Michalchuk just enough time to get out of the way.
‘Thank God it worked because it tripped her,’ Michalchuk added. ‘All I wanted to do is trip her. I dove in the door as quick as I could and I slammed the door and then she turned back towards her cubs.’
