The Ranger isn't going to like this, Yogi.
F*ck the Ranger, Boo-boo. I'm eating him anyway.

I don't want to hear this. I can barely stand to hear my dog eat his dog chow.

Play dead, play dead!!! ahhh!!!

Let me tell you, there are a lot of ways to die... and that would be one of the ways I would most definetely try to avoid.
2003-10-09 09:56:46 AM  
he should have just remained calm and punched the bear in the nose
2003-10-09 09:57:18 AM  
Tragic, but it proves once again that no one is an "expert" when it comes to animal behavior. Get well Roy!
2003-10-09 09:58:24 AM  
Internet, nothing. It will be on Fox probably by tonight.

"When Bears Attack" tonight, followed by Game 2 of the ALCS!

couldn't resist
2003-10-09 10:01:36 AM  
It'll be like BumFights. Of course, it will probably attract the attention of PETA. "Will somebody please think of the bears?"
2003-10-09 10:02:15 AM  
Sounds like the farking Blair Witch to me.
2003-10-09 10:05:13 AM  
I'm an animal "expert" and here's my opinion - *never* trust anything that is either bigger than you, meaner than you, or has the ability to kill/eat you.

Follow this simple rule, and you should be OK for the most part.
2003-10-09 10:06:15 AM  
I can never remember; do you play dead when getting attacked by a dear? Or is that a mountain lion? What about gorillas? With some animal you're supposed to yell and make yourself look bigger. I have no idea which one, though.

Ten Inches

That apartment sounds like a great deal.....I'm actually tempted to call about it
2003-10-09 10:06:48 AM  
Yeah, where IS the tape of Roy and the tiger? Them, and the bear too, will end up on "When Good Pets Go Bad"

If anyone's keeping score at home, they might want to add that eagle almost taking out Derek Jeter during the pre-game intros last night.

Ho hum. Maulings are so out.
2003-10-09 10:09:24 AM  
Yeah, where IS the tape of Roy and the tiger? Them, and the bear will be on "When Good Pets Go Bad"....or is it "When Animals Attack"?
2003-10-09 10:09:55 AM  
WOW...not only do audioedits suck, they're dangerous, too!!!
2003-10-09 10:13:05 AM  
People get bitten by their own dogs periodically, and this git thinks he "knows bears"

RIP. Hope he didn't breed.

You know, on reflection, I nominate this guy for a Darwin.
2003-10-09 10:13:45 AM  
I hear he's doing very well at acting dead right now...

/hey... why's it all warm in here all of a sudden? And who's the guy with the pitchfork?
2003-10-09 10:13:51 AM

The one thing that could have saved his ass, he wasn't allowed - a firearm. I used to deal with Alaskan's on a pretty regular basis, and there's good reasons they can't stand people from New York or California. The tourists go home, they live there all year round. They have to go find the bear which has now developed a taste for human flesh, and hope they got the one that ate the tourist. This means disembowling the bear to see if someone is inside. The truely horrifying thing though was the girlfriend who watched her bf get eaten, and then saw the bear turn on herself...
2003-10-09 10:22:13 AM  
Remember the Onion's point counterpoint "Woooo Bears!" vs. "AAAAGH! Bears!"? One guy was a football fan and the other guy was getting mauled.
2003-10-09 10:22:49 AM  
I found the transcript of the tape:
