Bear Kills Moose in Alaska Driveway as Residents Watch
Wednesday, May 09, 2007

HOMER, Alaska —

Odd sounds outside their home woke Gary and Terri Lyon early Sunday morning, so Gary got up to check it out. He looked outside and saw a 500-pound grizzly bear killing an adult moose in their driveway.

"I saw this wildlife spectacle of a full-grown brown bear on a moose and the moose fighting for its life," Gary said.

The couple put their dog inside, grabbed their cameras and started filming the attack as the grizzly battled the moose down the driveway, finally killing it. They posted the video on YouTube.


"She tore apart the chest cavity, ripped out the heart and ate it," Gary said. "It was like she knew that's what kept it alive."

Only a few mouthfuls later, the bear left the carcass and ran into the woods.

The Lyons contacted authorities, who sent state wildlife biologist Thomas McDonough to remove the dead moose. He brought it a half-mile down the road and contacted a charity to harvest the meat. But he suspected the bear would return.

The prediction was right. The bear returned later that night, judging by the fresh tracks found Monday morning. The Lyons are now locking their doors, trying to avoid a more dangerous confrontation.

"I've lived here for almost 30 years, and I've never had to shoot anything out of defense of property," Gary said. "It was just doing its own thing that the species has done forever. Unfortunately, it was in our yard."

Where it was flagged as 'inappropriate for some users'....You'd need a big gun to stop a grizzly in time, right?

I would feel confident with a .375 magnum against a grizzly.
It is said that .44 magnum was developed just for the grizzly.

Well anything that will deliver nore than 2 tonnes in point of impact will do but this is not excuse for not knowing how to aim and where to aim.

Kind regards

Not the first time, though:

I especially liked this:
"Once he had settled down, Trent Boggs traded his gun for a video camera, and he and Sheri Boggs let their 11-year-old daughter, Rebecca, watch the feed. It was a good opportunity to teach her about how to behave around bears, Trent Boggs said. But their other daughter, 7-year-old Nikole, was asleep, and they preferred it that way."
Here's a weapon more than capable of taking down a grizzly, according to the advertiser Wink At .50 cal it had better be!

I remember a friend of my father making a rather humorous comment while flipping through a firearm catalouge when I was quite young. He was an old verteran of the Canadian bush, as a contractor and a hunter. "Hmmmm, .45 cal......seven round box magazine. Six for the bear, one for yourself." Tongue
I'll take one of these thanks.

Maybe there are weapons of mass destruction in some paws...remember that NORAD is in Ghost-Grizzly´s turf! 8)

The "Ghost-Grizzly" - sounds like a top secret special forces unit...
