Bear Watch! The mood is tense; I have been on some serious, serious reports but nothing quite like this. I uh... Ching... King or whatever is inside right now. I tried to get an interview with him, but they said no, you can't do that he's a live bear, he will literally rip your face off.

Hey, you're making me look stupid. Get out here, Bear Jerk!

Kibbler: 30-second commercial followed by 32-second video


I couldn't get the linked site to play - maybe Adblock was blocking the commercial and what followed.

I guess the story isn't all that new because here is a YouTube from 2009

I'd imagine that the tiger is simply much more agile than the bear. If the bear could get hold of the tiger, it might win, but it would potentially get disemboweled in the process.

Just keep circling until the bear makes a mistake, jump on its back, use retractable claws to grip and hold on, then begin eating through the back of the bears neck.

Was going to link a video of one using that technique on a Buffalo, or even a 1000kg Gaur, but it's definitely too graphic for Fark. That's essentially how they kill any large prey, though: just jump on the back and hold on. Bear wouldn't have much of a chance with just its bite to worry about, and no horns to gore with, or hooves to trample with.

Tigers (and lions, for that matter) regularly take down prey much larger than themselves by jumping on the prey's back, digging in with the claws (5 inches long and curved - you're not shaking those out of your flesh), and biting the neck and head (fangs also about 5 inches long).  They are also masters of suffocation from the front, biting and closing down on their victim's throat, or even their mouth and nose.  A fight between these 3 would be a bloody epic, but I'd take the tiger or lion over the bear, and the tiger over the lion due to the difference in size.  The bear really wouldn't stand much of a chance.

In fact, here you go, straight from - where else? - Russia.  Tiger versus bear.  Bears are hopelessly outmatched by tigers.

Well ok, I should watch the entire video before posting, that was pretty terrible.  ;-)  But anyway, you can find this subject out there via Google and YouTube.  Happy hunting...

J. Frank Parnell: That's essentially how they kill any large prey, though: just jump on the back and hold on.


Years ago I read in Natural History magazine a hypothesis that this is how Neanderthals and maybe some other early humans hunted. They would jump on, get a firm grip on the hair, and stab with a stone knife till near dead. I recall the evidence presented was.

1) Why else did Neanderthals have such large upper body strength other than to hold on.
2) Most largish animals were exterminated except for the Moose because Moose have brittle hair and if you try to grab one by the hair it will just break.

I haven't seen this hypothesis since then but it was a pretty cool just-so story.
