We cull the internet in search of the latest outdoors-related tidbits — YouTube clips, photos, memes, you name it. Stuff you HAVEN’T seen before, hopefully. If it’s amusing, entertaining, educational or astonishing, you’ll find it here. Check back every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and see what’s new.
This is a friendly public service reminder to go ahead and really make sure that animal is well and truly dead before you approach it. Especially if it’s a bear.
Not doing so is inhumane, and, frankly, REALLY dangerous, as the young hunter in this video found out the hard way.
Even though the bear was hit three times — AND fell out of a tree — it still had enough fight left in it to claw the hunter up pretty good.
Bears will let out what is known as a death moan right before they die — although even that isn’t a guarantee.
So I guess the message is this: stay frosty out there. Animals are dangerous. One swipe is enough to send you to the ER.
