How many unarmed men does it take to kill a Grizzly? - Single Choice
Quote from glurmanHear hear! I say that you can do a lot more with a million dollars than, um, a hymen.
Quote from FirstTurnManaBurnThere are so many +25s, its pretty hilarious. It seriously only would take 1 or 2 men. One decoy, the other strangles the beast.
Quote from Set AbominaeThere are indeed black bear, but I was just referencing the part where there were 50 brown bear attack and 18 cougar attacks during that time frame. Plus, wouldn't your second point on that post partially refute the point of your previous post in that it suggests that habit and not population is a larger part of what makes bears more dangerous?

Quote from Carrion »Jace on the other hand gives you card advantage for no life cost. On the contrary, Jace can actually take some damage for you. I'd think that makes him better than Arena.
Quote from Jiaozy »Once again, rating proves NOTHING.
Quote from CynicalSquirrelYou do know what a grizzly bear is right? The decoy would be dead in about 0.2 seconds and the guy trying to choke the bear would get squashed.
As for incredible strength in these circumstances, that's true, but the increase in strength will really only make the bear more pissed off when you kick him. I think the people telling us we're underestimating humans are really really underestimating how much damage a pissed off grizzly can do. These things often kill people just that get in their way of food, imagine how they'll behave when two of them are kicking it in the shins and three others are jumping on top of it.

Quote from MajoraXBecause we can use tools. In a situation where that's out of the question, we are weak punching bags.
Quote from Firebreather... How are you going to strangle a grizzly bear? Let's say it is being passive and letting you do this you like couldn't get your arm all the way around it's neck. At least not far enough to strangle it. Not to mention the pressure actually needed to cut off the air flow would likely be more than you can supply even if you are using both arms to try and basically hug the bears wind pipe to death. As for using a humans bones for tools. Most likely you are going to die before you could separate them or even if you did you still probably couldn't get enough force. The story with the guy who managed to kill a bear above had a log as thick as his arm. Surprisingly our bones are generally not as thick as our bone wrapped in flesh. Oh but you could make spears or daggers you say? O.k. then you need to disengage the bear and then re attack it later since now you need time to make tools. So now you have your human bone spears and the like. Good work you now need to put enough force behind then so they are similar to a high caliber rifle. This completely passive bear has exhausted most of these ideas. Also most bears can climb as fast as they can run. Or knock down a smaller tree.
Quote from Oppo28You seem to underestimate the power of humans and overestimate the power of bears. Watch any videos of bears killing animals. Yes, they are huge, strong, and deadly. 200? No way. 25 is an obscene amount in my book. If one man and a stick can kill a black bear: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1075830/Bring-sweetie-Man-kills-bear-stick-hes-got-scars-prove-it.html
Then 6-10 can kill a grizzly with nothing.
Quote from RodyleAnyone who said 25+ is wrong, I think. Ever heard of hysterical strength? Under normal circumstances, a human uses less than one third of his muscle fibres. In rare cases, such as in a life/death situation, people use all of them. People have been know to lift cars in situations like these.
Quote from bleedingteddyIf I remember correctly a few years ago a guy in either BC or Alberta got attacked by a addolecent Grizzly and survived by knocking the bear out with a rear naked choke. Im far from 100% on the details but it was widely reported on both the major national newscasts here.

Quote from FirstTurnManaBurnPeople aren't that helpless, physically.
Quote from Oppo28Thanks FTMB. I've emailed a few 'bear experts' that I found on google, but none responded. I think your approach will more likely yield results. Keep us posted.
Quote from ElricJC »But life is too short for cheap beer.
Quote from HighrollerBlack bear = 155 to 600 pounds.
Grizzly bear = over 1000 pounds.
There's a BIG difference between killing something human weight and killing something that's over 1000 pounds. Also, grizzly bears? Significantly more vicious.
Quote from Oppo28Classic example of skewing numbers. Male bears can weigh over 1000 lbs, but typically weigh 400-770 lbs. This is a significant difference. Remember, the scenario is in the most average way possible, that is, the bear definitely weighs 400-770 lbs. because it is a typical bear, at least for this thought experiment.
Quote from HighrollerOk, and that black bear the guy took out could have weighed less than he did. Doesn't change the fact that this is a grizzly bear.
