Well, you got Paddington Bear, and Winnie the Pooh -- don't they count?

btw, my nephew is a heli-rapeller forest fire guy, and was surprised by a bear in Montana 2 years ago -- if you see fresh poop you're in trouble.

I know all about those things. Bears can run at something like 25 to 30 mph. Buuuuuuuut with you standing there taking pot shots and me heading in the other direction - that puts you between the bear and me. If you are lucky enough to hit it - then no problem and we are both safe.... If ya ain't - well - it's been nice knowing ya......

I'm qualified with a number of those little bang-bang toys and I don't give a big hoot about what people see in the movies - hitting a fast moving target is not that easy..... Esp. if you have a load in your pants....

wise choice.

fire twice for polar bears.

When a black bear grabbed 22-year-old Brooke Collins' dachshund on Wednesday,

the Alaska native didn't stop to think of the consequences.

She just punched the bear in the face.

The elderly dog suffered only minor injuries.

Dirty Harry would wet his pants seeing all that furious, hairy mass charging towards him. A punk is one thing, a force of Nature, another.
