Not this kid

Saw this today at Brock's who got it from Theo Spark.   I ain't tracing it back any further than that.

ABBOTSFORD, CANADA: Grizzly man Mark Dumas, 60, is the only man in the world who can touch a polar bear. And as these incredible pictures show the fearless bear handler from Abbotsford, British Columbia, even goes for dip in his swimming pool where he and 16-year-old polar bear Agee enjoy a watery cuddle together. Mark and wife Dawn, 60, train the 60-stone (800lb) friendly beast - the world's largest land predator - to star in high-budget TV adverts. She has even performed in movies like 'Alaska' in 1995 when she was just a few weeks old. With his incredibly intimate bond Mark wrestles on the grass with Agee, kisses her, puts his head in her huge jaws, and even bear hugs her as she rears up on her hind legs to over seven feet. Mark and Dawn have owned Agee since she was six weeks old and the colossal mammal even lived in their home as a cub where she played with the family dogs and was bottle fed.


My next video will be of a guy that was killed by his pet polar bear......
It's always been my general policy to stay as far away as possible from wild animals that can kill and eat me. I'm not quite sure when I decided that was a good idea, but it's kept me from being the guy that got eaten by a mountain lion or a bear or a wild hog. And I stay the fuck out of the ocean, there's all kinds of weird and hungry shit in there.

Hell, I'm even cautious around CharlieGodammit with the wolf that he's got in him - I trust the dog, I don't trust the wolf in him. I don't fuck with him while he's eating, I don't tease him and I know his signs when he's feeling ballsy, like the way he drops his head or holds his ears or even looks at me before he nips or snaps. We play rough together, sometimes even drawing blood, so he feels he can get away with that shit with me. He's big enough though that he could do some damage before I could manage to shoot him and that's the last thing I would want to do to my bud anyways. I just don't push him.
Not Lisa, though. She's had a hard and fast rule about him putting his mouth on her or even licking her from Day 1. The other day she was pulling a clump of shedding hair off him and he turned to nip at her like he does me and she popped him right on the nose. She's fucking fearless with him. But that dog is absolutely devoted to her. He follows her around all day, escorts her out to the laundry room at night, sleeps at her feet, shares his farts with her and just stares at her all day long with those big ol' yellow-brown eyes of his.
He still sleeps on my side of the bed, though.

Yummy Polar bear lunch at ready hand pretty much any time. From My understanding, the polar bear is the only land animal other than Sasquatch, that has no fear of humans, even with firearms. Frankly, I'd rather meet Sasquatch. You're dead anyway!

Last year they found the half-eaten remains of some guy up in the Jemez, done by a mountain lion

Some twerp from NM Game and Fish was on radio and said "This isn't very common"

Next segment, the host says "Yea ! ... cuz piles of mountain lion crap don't make phone calls to report they've been eaten"

Not sure about grizzly bears, but mountain lion attacks although fairly rare, are far from uncommon. They can take down a sheep, goat or deer and a big one can weigh 50 pounds and be almost 4 foot long. All teeth and claws.

Grizzly bears I guess, can take down almost anything on the planet.
