HOAX

This has been floating around the internet for a couple of years. The bear is not a world record. If I remember right it's under 10 ft. It didn't charge anyone. It wasn't killed with a 7 mag. As far as the Alaska W&F knows the bear hadn't killed anyone.

Didn't even look at all the pics. The leg picture has also popped up a few times on hunting forums but never in connection with the bear. The leg pic was suspected to be a hoax but I don't think it was ever proven. Looks like a photoshop job to me.

Maybe this is the true story.


Alaskan's enormous brown bear was a record

By Natalie Phillips / Anchorage Daily News

It was a big bear -- its front legs spanning 11 feet from claw tip to claw tip, its skull the size of a beer keg, its paws as big as a man's chest.

An Eielson Air Force Base airman shot the record-book grizzly during an October 2001 deer hunt in Prince William Sound. ''It's an exceptional bear,'' said master guide Joe Want of Fairbanks, a 40-year veteran of Kodiak Island, home to the biggest brown bears in North America. ''It's an understatement to say that it is a trophy of a lifetime.''

Now it's an Internet legend
But perhaps equally amazing is how much the bear has grown in size and legend in just a few weeks' time on the Internet. Hundreds of people around Alaska and across the country are circulating photographs of the bear and the hunter who shot it. With each missive, the tale and the bear seem to grow.

By the time e-mail stories started reaching the Daily News in late November, the bear towered 12 feet, 6 inches tall and weighed more than 1,600 pounds. Another writer said the ferocious bear had charged the unsuspecting deer hunter, who emptied his gun, but shot the bear dead in the nick of time with his last shell. Though this was indeed a big bear, those numbers and that sequence of events aren't right. So how big was the bear, and what really happened?
