#4 Polar bears are nothing to mess with. One of they boys that went to high school in the town I lived in got attacked and half eaten by a polar bear at Point Lay in northwest Alaska. He and his girlfriend were walking home and the bear attacked. He told his girlfriend to skidaddle and she did while he fought off the bear. Villagers heard the commotion and came out and shot the bear. A fish and game necropsy found that the bear was starving. There was no fat on the animal except a little on the heart.

I have flown over a bunch near Cape Churchill on Hudson Bay, glad the engine was running fine...heh. They are impressive animals. Grizzly man Timothy Treadwell wouldn't get close to these party animals! Even had one wandering around the airport that day in Churchill.

#6 How about a 44 magnum or 454 Casull. Just for a walking about gun.

Remember to a large Bear you are just food if they are hungry enough and just in their way if they are not.

#7 Well, it sounds like this lady's got what it takes - to be a cartoonist in the 21st Century world. Or - maybe newspaper editor.

More power to her.
