Thought everyone might be interested in this story. On Nov. 21 on my way to my trapline down on the AK hwy, near Coal river in the Yukon i saw a grizzly on the hwy, it was a big bear 7 1/2 to 8 fter. it was skinny and not acting right, i was going to shoot it but since i am from the yukon and was in bc didnt want the legal hassel. anyway 2 days later this bear made its way to Coal river lodge where there was an older lady there alone (she has lived there for 30 years and doesnt own a rifle?????) anyway the bear kept her in her house for 4 hours, it was banging so hard on the walls it was knocking things off inside! she had an airhorn and was blowing it to get scare the bear and maybe get a cars on the hwy to stop. finialy a guy stopped (he didnt see the bear he just saw a frantic lady in the window!) he pulls up and gets out and starts to walk up when here comes griz in full charge!! he makes it to his truck where in the back (not sure why the back) he has bear spray, well it almost got him killed as it was frozen!! he made the cab of his truck by the skin of his ass and gets backed up to the door and gets the lady in his truck, then they drive to fireside a few miles away and get a guy with a rifle he comes back and the bear was hideing behind the house and charged from very close range, the guy wasnt a greenhorn and got 2 shots into the bear and killed it. this story was on the front page of the ft nelson paper, the lady says she is considering buying a gun!! ya think! she lives in the middle of nowhere i cant believe she didnt have one and know how to use it! my youngest daughter is 15 and she does. I knew from experince that bears out at that time of year are most often bad news, if I would have shot it how many of you think it would have been the right thing to do??
