    Default Old or new Bear news-????

    Just heard someone got a grizzly with some teeth missing, old bullet path down neck and bullet in shoulder.

    Bear was thought to be the one that mauled Mr. Stanford last sept 20th, upstream from Maclaren river lodge......

    Don't know if this is 'fresh' news or old news,, don't have any other details.

    ???

    I thought this bear was killed at the time wasn't it?

    It was shot at but never recovered. I'd heard last week that the folks at the lodge knew the bear was up and about, but that's how good stories get started Very well could have been the bear though.

    That makes for a cool story to think about anyway. If I remember right he only fired once didn't he? Does anyone know how the gentleman that got mauled it doing?

    I'm not sure how Mr Stanford is doing, good hopefully, I think he was Marine, and a very tough fella to do what he had to do after being mauled.
