This, Alaskan Forest Service, ranger, shot and killed this bear as The bear was getting ready to eat him, as he had several others. Art

He was out deer hunting, in the Alaskan wilds, last week ,when a large grizzly bear charged him from about 50 yards away.  The ranger emptied his 7mm Magnum semi-automatic rifle into the bear and it dropped a few feet from him.  The big bear was still alive so he reloaded and shot it several times in the head.

The bear was just over ONE THOUSAND, SIX HUNDRED pounds.
It stood ALMOST 13 FEET HIGH at the SHOULDER, and 14 FEET to the
It's the LARGEST grizzly bear, or any bear, for that matter, ever recorded in the world.

Of course, the Alaskan Fish and Wildlife Commission will not let him keep it as a trophy, but the bear will be stuffed and mounted, and placed on display at the Anchorage airport;
To remind tourists of the risks involved when in the wild.
What a "Welcome", site,

Based on the contents of the bears stomach, the Fish and Wildlife Commission established the bear had killed at least two humans in the prior 72 hours, before being killed itself, including a missing hiker.

The US Forest Service, backtracking from where the bear had originated, found the hiker's 38-caliber pistol emptied.
Not far from the pistol were ,what little was left, of 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. (the Service ultimately found four 38 caliber slugs along with twelve 7mm slugs inside the bear's dead body), it only, slightly, wounded the bear and probably angered it, even more.
Better walk tall, and carry a BIG gun,
In The Alaskan frontier. 

The bear killed the hiker an estimated two days prior to the bear's own death by the gun of the Forest Service worker.

Think about this:
If you are six feet tall;

You would be level with the bear's navel,when he stood upright. 
The bear would look you in the eye when it walked on all fours! 

To give additional perspective,

consider that this particular bear, standing on its hind legs,could walk up to an average single story house and look over the roof,
or walk up to a two story house and look in the upstairs windows.

This riveting article, like so many others in your repertoire, is a play on words ... yet worded playfully!

Art, Indeed, this is a Beary-Scary story! It was a 'bery' scary read! I wouldn't like to come face to face with one such scary bear! Poor hiker! To meet such an awful death...Jonah was lucky when he got swallowed by a big fish!

God Bless

Art, this is a Beary-Scary Story! Seems like it is rather a monster than a bear, we can't even imagine to be facing anything that huge!
Would have made a good article too,
