Just got done watching a Moose/Brown Bear hunt on the outdoor channel, DVR is the best thing invented, but they took a brown bear out of Cardova, well 2 out of there. Crew and guide stalked a boar and took a shot about about 50 yards. The bear jumped and turned and walked away and then they shot again. Just as the second shot rang you could see a sow and her cubs crest a little grassy mound and they spotted the crew and shooter. The sow with cubs started to charge. The guide jumped up started to yell to scare them away but she kept coming, he lowered the gun, allowed her to get within 8 yards and shot. The guide seemed very upset and said it was unfortunate but just wonding how much you scan the area for other bears when you shoot. The film showed him come over the grassy mound and then prepare to shoot. I am sure they looked around before but just didn't know how common this was for all of them to be together. At the end of the show there was a note to say that it was investigated by Fish and Game and was deamed to be a DLP (Defense of Life and Property) and they were cleared.
Found it intresting to watch but just didn't know how common it was.
