Based on the contents of the bears stomach, the Fish and Wildlife Commission established the bear had killed at least two humans in the past 72 hours. His last meal was the unlucky nature buff in the third picture below. The US Forest Service, backtracking from where the bear had originated, found the hiker's 38-caliber pistol emptied. Not far from the pistol was the remains of the hiker . The other body has not been found. Although the hiker fired six shots and managed to hit the grizzly with four shots (they ultimately found four 38 caliber slugs along with twelve 7mm slugs inside the bear's dead body) it only wounded the bear - and probably angered it. The bear killed the hiker an estimated two days prior to the bear's own death by the gun of the Forest Service worker.

A .45 caliber auto with +P frangible hollowpoints may have been more effective.

Grizzlies are some really bad boys & this cat found out just HOW bad in a pretty frightening way :>disappointed smiley
That .38 wasn't much against a bear of that size and without a good head shot it wasn't likely to do much. I think I'd have had to have saved the last shell and done my best to put the barrel right in his muzzle before pullin the trigger.

Funny how stories on the net get all mixed up. I watched that movie too and was thinking the same as you 163127.

At least "grizzly man" got some great footage before he become bear dung.

A 45 will not penetrate the bear enough to hit vital organs.. nor will the 38.
The 7mm must of been badly placed shots.
I carry a 357 in bear country. Be lucky if that'd kill with bad aim.
