How many unarmed men does it take to kill a Grizzly? - Single Choice
Quote from PandasRpeople2Given unarmed humans, I voted 11-15.
Punching and kicking is no match for clawing and biting. The humans' only chance would be to strangle/suffocate the bear. Probably by forming a big monkey pile.
Quote from ShaharazadI've been thinking about this...
And I refute the innitial quesiton.
A bears weapons are it's strength, claws and such.
That is it's natural weaponry.
A humans natural weaponry will be pieces of wood, rocks etc.
Even at our most basic, and stripped from all the trappings of our modern life, we are still tool using creatures and to deny us of the capability to use makeshift weaponry is the same thing as denying the bear it's claws and natural strength.

Quote from Highroller
No, it isn't, because a bear is born with claws and born with teeth. A human being is not born with rocks.
Quote from Brenda - Scientist, of the Alaskan Science Center. »Hi Chris--
I'm afraid I can't even hazard a guess at this question. Hopefully some of the others will feel more confident replying. Good luck getting an answer.
Quote from Maverick827Ok, but a human is born with a larger brain and thumbs that allows it to use the environment that must exist for either creature to be alive in the first place.
Quote from FirstTurnManaBurnYeah, I was surprised it took 4 days for a [scientist's] response. I even made a foot note in the email that lives may be at stake, as the severity of this debate may turn to disparity - testing the hypotheses with real men and bears. I hope the other scientists have more enlightening responses.
Quote from BurningPaladinHumans are the best long range runners in the world. So we could use that.
Quote from The Fallen OneJust one: TFO because the grizzly would die in the face of his awesomeness
eds: and kpaca would steal his hat
Quote from ArchboundsThis is why humans evolved to be cognitive and create tools :).
But anyway, I would say 2 at the least. One to be mauled, the other to also be mauled.
Quote from Blinking SpiritWhat?! Look at the initial post; he is dead. Deceased. Kaputt. Indefinitely horizontal. In mafia games, you see, people are occasionally "killed off," and when that sad event occurs, he or she is no longer allowed to post, on account of rigor mortis and what-have-you.
Quote from arimnaes'Welcome to Mafia Salvation', it said, 'Population: 3,660.' And someone, they never figured out who, had painted on the sign in red letters: '1,831 to lynch.'
Quote from Oppo28That sucks FTMB.. I was hoping for a real response after this long.
Quote from Oppo28I still can't believe how many people are overrating the killing power of a bear. Youtube bear kills and you can see that while they are definitely big and deadly, they aren't competent combatants by any stretch. They mostly kill by tackling and then biting the neck or body and just kind of mauling them or just holding the bite until they die. They wouldn't be able to handle multiple targets at once with much efficiency at all.
Quote from HighrollerWhat are you kidding me? This is probably a giant joke to them.
