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

Comments:

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 so....it 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.

#17, camping is cheapest. But reservations are needed these days. Please do go. I have visited there about 40 times, and it is always worth it. Taken family and friends. You will love it. There are rooms at Lake Lodge area, and others, too, if you don't camp.

One of the main arguments being advanced by Eric Nelson, sole attorney for Derek Chauvin in his trial for the murder of George Floyd, is that the hostile crowd itself prevented the officers from attempting to perform CPR in the last minutes of Floyd’s life. Even the prosecution’s “use of force” experts admitted repeatedly on cross-examination that a hostile crowd would justify Chauvin keeping Floyd restrained until an ambulance arrived. An officer’s duty to provide care is overridden by his duty to keep himself, the suspect and the bystanders safe. As was evident from the videos (and

A new Democrat administration and two recent mass shootings mean it’s time for another episode of the gun-control melodrama that’s been running for decades. We all know the scenario: an obviously deranged person murders several people, Dem pols and pundits start fulminating about our lax gun control laws and gun-obsessed white males, followed by a bunch of ineffective proposals and policies that will do nothing about crime, but will annoy law-abiding gun-owners, which is ultimately the real purpose of the show––demonizing a political enemy.
The New York Times' 'Russian

On June 27, 2020, the New York Times ran a bombshell story: “Russia Secretly Offered Afghan Militants Bounties to Kill U.S. Soldiers” In the subsequent uproar, Donald Trump’s denial was seen as just another example of him being a Russian intelligence asset. Trump called it “fake news.” Meanwhile, the intelligence community was split. The NSA was never convinced of the truthfulness of the story and “strongly dissented” from the view of the CIA. By September, there still was no credible evidence that the Russians had paid anyone to kill U.S. soldiers. Today, Joe Biden announced sanctions on Russia, in part, for offering bounties on dead U.S. soldiers.

The NCAA reaffirmed its decision to refuse to hold college championships in states where laws “discriminate” against male athletes who identify as female. The board of governors issued a statement that “firmly and unequivocally” supports the inclusion of transgender athletes in college sports. The statement comes after several states have passed laws preventing biological males from competing in girls’ athletics. Apparently, the NCAA, which governs rules on competition in college sports, thinks it’s OK for biological males to compete against biological females. The only way they can allow this is if they ignore the biology in favor of being fashionable. In truth, the NCAA isn’t doing anything differently than

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is determined to root out “extremism” from the ranks of the military. He has just concluded a 60-day series of “listening sessions” dealing with the question of how he should go about the task of cleansing the armed forces of bad thoughts and is now ready to begin implementing programs and policies to that end. But Austin has a huge problem. He has to be able to define “extremism” in such a way as to safeguard our constitutional liberties while rooting out the skinheads, the Klan members, the gangbangers, and violent revolutionaries that make up a small but significant fraction of the armed forces. What is “extremism”?

I was surprised to read (in The Los Angeles Times) that the Biden administration's "role model for America" is... California! He wants to "Make America California." That's is a terrible idea. Californians now rush to move out of California. Some hopeful folks still move there, but so many more leave that California now loses more than 10,000 citizens every month. In fact, the state will soon lose a congressional seat. Why do Californians leave? "Exorbitant tax rates, high crime rates, the failing public school systems, the exorbitant cost of living," says reporter Kristen Tate in my new video. So many Californians move away that there's now even a shortage of U-Hauls.

President Joe “Buy a Shotgun” Biden announced plans to “go it alone” on eroding gun rights on Thursday by announcing several executive orders. Biden issued diktats to regulate plastic gun “braces” for handicapped users, criminalize AR pistols, get tough on guns you can’t sell, and begin to federalize “red flag laws” that, by definition, deny citizens their right to due process. Biden announced that rights, like that pesky Second Amendment, are not “absolute,” as PJ Media colleague Tyler O’Neill reported. Rather, they’re malleable or entirely replaceable by his lights.

One of the shortcomings of maps showing the potential area of naval confrontation between China on the one hand and the US, Japan and Australia on the other is they commonly depict the surface of the sea.

There was a prolonged ammunition shortage during the Obama administration. I got through that one because a Power Line reader lined me up with a dealer in West Virginia who seemed to have an endless supply of 9 mm. and .22LR rounds. Over the last year, another ammo shortage has struck, caused in part by an influx of new gun buyers who are responding to rising crime rates, attacks on law enforcement, and the election of Joe Biden. As with most shortages, it has been accentuated by hoarding: whenever a shooter saw boxes of a popular caliber on the shelves, he would buy them all. For quite a while
