WEST YELLOWSTONE — A person is recovering at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center after being attacked by a grizzly bear Thursday afternoon. Emergency crews were called to an area near Bakers Hole Campground around 3:45 p.m., according to a Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office news release. They searched for 50 minutes before finding the injured person, who had significant scalp and facial injuries. Gallatin County Sheriff Search & Rescue were called to respond on snowmobile with a rescue toboggan. The victim was loaded onto the toboggan and taken to a nearby ambulance. Hebgen Basin Fire Department EMS crews then drove the patient to EIRMC. “Now is the time to remember to be conscientious


If it matters, the author of a book on Bear Whisperer Timothy Treadwell (RIP) studied bear attacks of humans. He concluded that although a grizzly--especially a mother with cubs--is more likely than a black bear to attack, the black bear is somewhat more likely to finish off the attack, and not just bite the poor fellow's face and scalp off. (Sorry for the grisly image.) A polar bear, of course, will make a meal of any person caught out in the open without a very large caliber firearm.

My wife and I are regular visitors to Yellowstone and it cannot be emphasized enough to keep one's distance from the park's and wildlife and to understand that we are visitors to their world. We enjoy and remain respectful of the park's natural wonders.

The Ka-Bar combat knife, first issued to the U.S. Marines in WW2, its schematic drawings dating from 1942, and produced in Olean, NY, reportedly got its name from a someone having to kill a ba'ar (successfully) with the blade. Such a knife would be a formidable weapon, even against bears. It's illegal in Great Britain, except to the SAS. During the original 1918 Tarzan movie with Elmo Lincoln, the actor actually killed a lion with his knife.

An interesting book to read is Night of the Grizzlies. Two young women were dragged away and killed by grizzly bears on the same night back in the 1960s. They used to feed the bears leftover garbage and tourists would watch from a distance. Turned out to be a bad idea.

They've had a long winter's nap and they're looking for snacks. I suspect it's also mating season to add a little aggressiveness. See pretty bear, GO THE OTHER WAY FAST.

'A person'? Still learning Newspeak, but does the total lack of modifiers imply this was a non-white, non-male-self-identifying, non-heterosexual person? Cuz if it was any of those, it would have been noted.

Giant fearsome carnivores....and here I am, made out of meat. I always carry a .44 Mag pistol when in grizzly country, and it is legal inside the park, too, and I do. The wife has a large bear spray cannister, first line of defense. Take these fellows seriously. Generally not going to attack but too unpredictable to just ignore.

Other wildlife in the park can also be deadly. One of my employees was traveling through Yellowstone some years ago and witnessed an ambulance loading a victim. It seems a woman wanted a close-up of a sleeping bison that awakened the animal. It then got up and trampled her to death

#11, I was photographing a magnificent huge bison bull in Yellowstone, staying about 50 yds away with a good climbing tree between me and the bison, using a long telephoto lens. Up comes a minivan, and out pops Idiot Father with his Idiot Son. Son is perhaps 4 or 5, so get a small bit of slack. Idiot Father has his crappy camera with a wide angle lens, and hands poor Idiot Son a dried up bison patty to hold like a dinner plate in front of his chest, and then urges the boy to "no, back up, get closer", repeatedly. Even the very small child had his doubts at the advisability of this, but hey, Dad says must be safe, right? Idiot Father kept urging the kid closer, until the kid was about 15-20 feet from the placidly grazing bull. At this point, I decide that I didn't want to be involved in the carnage, and turned and walked about 50 yds directly farther away, putting three or four more trees between me and the insanity. I then turned 90 degrees and walked quickly away. I don't know if these fools got away with their unknowing brush with death or not. I just didn't want to be put in the position of trying to save them or provide first aid. And I have seen similar things multiple times in Yellowstone. People really are amazingly stupid and clearly imagine that these are some sort of Disney cartoon characters, not large unpredictable wild animals that can and DO kill people with some regularity. Life is all about choices.

When I visited Yellowstone any time animals were visible the park rangers made sure people stayed away. These are wild animals. Don't think they are the cuddly type. And bears, moose and wolves can run fast. We visited Glacier National Park in September and the park gift shop was all out of bear spray. Bet thing to do if you see a bear is to back away slowly and never get near a mama bear with cubs.

I remember writing a piece in second grade about Yellowstone. That was more than 60 years ago. It was always a dream of mine to visit Yellowstone then, and still is. I had plans to visit about eleven years ago, even had hotel reservations at the lodge with a room facing Old Faithful. Then I lost my job, so no trip. I still would love to go, even if it was a just day trip to see Old Faithful. I could at least cross it off my bucket list, but oh the plans I had eleven years ago.

A few years ago hunting a Geocache on a mountain top drove around a curve in the trees and up ahead were two bear cubs wrassling in the middle of the road, I'll confess it took me a second to process what I was seeing before looking for mama who came charging from the uphill side yelling at them to get off the road, swatted them as they tumbled down the downhill side and followed, we then saw a few others after a bit - decided I'd take the Ruger .44 instead of my usual Kimber .45 when going there in the future! NorCal so thankfully "just" brown bears but there are people that want to bring back the Grizzly Bears to the state.

I was visiting my family graveyard way out in the country when a huge bear reared his head over the fence. He looked at me, I looked at him and we both gasped. It was not funny then but when I later told the groundskeeper he told me that that boy shows up occasionally to rub his itchy back on the huge memorial to a founding priest of the parish. Now I can laugh.

#14, My loads will penetrate about 30 inches with non expanding hard cast bullets. I have no illusions about the invicibility of the load, but have carefully studied griz anatomy and can accurately place them. It certainly beats my Swiss Army knife and harsh language. If a long gun is available, shotgun slugs have proven to be very effective. Also, a Marlin Guide Gun lever action in .45-70 with heavy nonexpanding bullets has been used effectively in hunting them by acquaintances.

One of the most fascinating questions about WW2 concerns when the Nazis realized they had lost the war. Some say the generals knew early as December 1941, when Operation Barbarossa was stopped before Moscow, that the great throw of the dice had failed. Others say civilian leaders came to it in 1942 when Case Blue failed to secure the oil they needed to fight on in the East. But most certainly the public moment had come by February 1943, when Joseph Goebbels delivered his famous “Total War” speech admitting that, far from attaining victory, the Reich would be very lucky to survive without a mobilization on a Communist scale.

NEW YORK CITY—Just as New York City restaurateurs thought they would perhaps see their way out of crushing COVID-19 restrictions and back to “normalcy,” the city’s government dealt out another blow: Restaurants will now have to check customers for proof of vaccination, or themselves face fines. In response, restaurant owners seem to have flocked to one of two positions. Some support the rule as long as it prevents more lockdowns, while others reject it as an unreasonable imposition on their already vulnerable operations. Restaurants have been among the hardest hit by the lockdown imposed in response to the pandemic of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, which causes COVID-19. New York City

The Mexican government on Wednesday sued several U.S. gun manufacturers, alleging that they contribute to illegal gun trafficking to Mexico. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. federal court in Boston. Among the defendants named in the suit are Smith & Wesson, Barrett Firearms, Beretta U.S.A. and Colt’s Manufacturing Company. The companies did not immediately respond to CNBC’s requests for comment. The gun manufacturers are accused of negligent business practices that facilitate smuggling guns to Mexico and cause “massive damage” to the country.

What will it take for Joe Biden to admit he is disastrously wrong about Afghanistan? The US leader struck a defiant pose last week. Sounding like a slightly desperate Olympics coach, he told Afghans it was their country. If they want it, they have to fight for it. In American politics-speak, this is called tough love. Without the love. Biden has more hands-on foreign policy experience than any president since George HW Bush. That doesn’t mean he knows what he’s doing. Opinion polls suggest his abrupt Afghan withdrawal has majority public support. That doesn’t mean Americans will remain indifferent as the carnage and misery mount.

This time, it says it can’t afford to mount special exhibitions planned to mark the two-decade milestone.
