    Wow, at least it was quick for the bear. One that size would be fairly old. Better to go out in fighting trim. :)

    The photos do not match the story. The creation date of the photos was years ago. I think this is a case of poachers wanting to brag about their manly kill. I hope someone in the area sees the story and looks into it.

    Looks like the story is false but the pics are - different place/time. But looking at the comments I have to laugh at the gal who was crying that the bear could have been tranquilized and relocated... its not his fault we are in his territory... bla bla bla.... all while looking at findmeahunt dot com... now that is a pot stirrer. I wonder if she patrols other "unsavory" topic sites to give the "I'm not opposed to hunting for food but this is barbaric" speech just waiting to see her words change the world.
    I vote we drop her in this poor bear's territory with a gun to defend herself and a tranq gun and see which she chooses when the big ole griz comes to call...

    i noticed the inconsistencies with the photos as well. The fact still remains is that it's a big bear and it does exist and that's why you need .50BMG SBR LOL.

    the one inconsistency to ignore is the date, I never change the date on my camera, its back to the month/year it was made every time I change the batteries
    but yea, facts don't tend to survive when picture goes from keepsake to chainmail

    The date you have set on your camera will have little effect on the creation date of the file.

    PBP, in the tag in the jpg it does, if you don't edit and just copy straight from the flash card nothing will be changed, it'll still contain the same date and all other info

    Cameras have internal clocks and update tgheir own time once they are set. Plus, downloading a file and then clicking on the files attributes will indicate the file creation date. You can also open the file with programs similar to resedit and they will tell you the date the digital file was created. Not the dat ethe pic was taken, but the date it was first loaded onto a computer. This file has a creation date way before the date of the story.

    Regardless of where the bear was taken,, its a big one. Lived in the Bristol bay AK. area for awhile and can say that monsters are real and even zombies run the other way! Apex top line predators that absolutely know they are bigger and tougher than anything walking,,, including another bigger bear.

    OMG. That is a beast. If I lived where they live I would be saving up for a tank.

    Those claws could take you apart with one swoop.

    I like the third picture,

    How very cynical of you.



    The story is fake, but they're not poachers.
    The people you see in the pictures are hunting guides... I'll even give you their phone number...
