Very Sad. Mother nature can be very dangerous. ABC (Always be Careful)
Some of the commenters should be bear food
Or Anyone But Cuomo
Rrad this yesterday. Bears are savages. There is/was a movie on Netflix. Independent about a true story in Canada where hikers were attacked by bears. Woman survives...go figure
That's too bad and unfortunate, but it is a risk when living that lifestyle.
Out west there are several apex predators, it seems this year they really showed what they are capable of. There is this story, over on Vancouver island a young female school teacher was out jogging and was run down and killed by a pack of wolves which were eating on her when they found her.
A little east of Seattle two lesbians we riding bicycles out on a trail and were attacked by a cougar, one was killed and the cougar was eating on the corpse when they found her.
A few weeks later just across the border in Oregon a old lady was walking out on a trail and was attacked & killed by a cougar which was eating on her corpes when they discovered her.
I live in Arlington, Washington. Right at the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. About four years ago they trapped a cougar five blocks from our house over by Kent Parrie School and released it fifteen miles away in Oso right were we go target shooting occasionally. The game department was patrolling that area with their radio tracking devises for well over a month to monitor that cats movements.
Cougars are always being seen and caught on trail cams close to town. On the bulletin at the stores and on telephone poles there are always posters of lost dogs & cats. Most likely then ended up being cougar food. Darrigton is thirty miles east from our house, fifteen miles east of oso and is where we do most of our target shooting, there are plenty of deer in that area and also plenty of cougars. Plus the wolves migrated into the darrington area. And there are both black bears and grizzley bears present in that area.
Between our house are Oso is nothing but mountains and woods, between Oso and darrington is nothing but more Mountains and woods. Beyond Darrigton is just a vast amount of mountains and woods until you get over the Cascade Mountain range and over to eastern Washington and they have a shot load of open terrain and their fair share of apec predators.
Eastern Washington is where the majority of the wolf packs are. The state says there are twenty-two wolf packs, which is a down right lie.
Every body and their brother has trail cams set out all across the state and ate capturing pictures of wolves. The state says they are either coyotes of someone's pet husky.
Most of the close encounters with any of these predators never make it to the news. They bury the stories.
Because of these close and fatal encounters I let my seven year old grandson carry a 38spl or a 357mag watered down to 800 fps. We shoot out in the wilderness, atleast four miles sometimes twenty miles off of the main road. There is no help out there, you are honestly on your own.
Then throw in the druggies that set up their meth cooking operations, which are more dangerous then any wild predator.
If you are not armed and ready to take action, you can and will get killed if you run across any of these predators or drug people.
They had already been in the area three months, remote, trapping. They must have known this was bear country. And in bear country you don't leave the house unless you're armed. It was a fatal mistake; she should always have been carrying.
Maybe she was.
Alot of people killed by bears were armed.
Bears can move very fast and surprisingly quiet.
My GF and I lived in a cabin in the Brooks range in remote Alaska for almost 2 years.
We would see big grizzlies from our windows pretty often.
We trapped, hunted and fished for most of our food but never had a dangerous bear encounter. Close, but not dangerous.
That sounds cool! Daughter and I Watch life below zero on Netflix and it covers this area.
I was waiting for the punchline lol...
Bears are wild animals like lions, tigers, crocodiles, etc... once we enter in their backyards we need to understand and repect these facts of nature.
Look at that young female school teacher from Endicott New Yorkistan that was on vacation in South Carolina I believe who was going to protect her dog from an alligator. She saved the dog but got killed in the process.
Fuck the dog, it is a dog. Another one can be bought for cheap at the dog pound or from these dog rescue groups.
Most dogs are worth a lot more living than many people I see around.
Not only they will not hurt anyone but they have jobs helping people.
At the other hand I see some people that are the source of a lot of suffering and total scumbags that waste room and oxygen.
So sad. Poor baby.
Even in the 'burbs sometimes you have to be careful. It's been a few years now that the college kid was mauled by a black bear in NJ and died, but someone in town just lost a dog to a pack of coyote. Less than 40 miles from NYC, and we see coyote, black bear, foxes... we even have a red-shouldered hawk that stops by from time to time.
know your friend or be armed if not ..
but the little doggie is family ... and if seen out in the snow you get a felony charge .. but the doggie loves the snow .. ..
PA just made a LAW .. 30 minutes outside if under 32F .. .. do us humans have to stop working if out in the cold more then 30 minutes ..
sorry truckers .. its cold out ..
why i bought a Mosin .. Agnes Hailstone .. my AV pic . first yr for rifle in county here .. buck down with a Mosin
but she got a Moose from a boat ..
when is FUAC going to close the Adirondack Trail to save the children from wild bobcats or yotes and bears .. or the killer fisher .. who wants to mess with a pissed of mommy raccoon ??
i say this as ohh the GOVT will protect you .. hiking and biking trails on tax $$$ and closing shooting areas .. ( from another thread ) ..
you can't have a gun in NY per FUAC ..
its a shame that happened ... here in NY FUAC will fly in and save you is the Motto ..
Does anyone want to domesticate a bear with me? We can either go grab a cub while the mom is near by or find an older one (preferably male)
I'll go in on domesticating a bear, one about eleven feet tall standing on its hind legs.
We can go to Vancouver island, shoot it, have it mounted, place it in the livingroom, done domesticated.
Haha! Agnes is a damn sharpshooter with those iron sights on her old rifles. The best gun on the show is the AR10 that Sue used to take down a grizzly.
