Nostalgia cookie of the day: Devil's Food Squares.

Look at this great commercial:That was the one cookie we always had at my house when I was a child — because these were the cookies my father liked. There were other cookies — Hydrox, Oreo, Vanilla Wafers, Pecan Sandies, Scooter Pies — but the king of all cookies was the Devil's Food Square. And I love the outdoor ethos of the commercial. These were clearly boys' cookies. Boys and grizzly bears' cookies. And I have to give this my "logos" tag for that Nabisco logo (which turns into a cowboy on a...

Wyoming Bear Attack Glock Had No Round In The Chamber

Dean Weingarten: With no round in the chamber and no magazine in the pistol, the Glock was rendered useless, if Mark Uptain ever got to it. Uptain had bear spray holstered on his hip. Chubon did not recall Uptain using the bear spray to the point where Chubon fled to get help. Uptain emptied the bear spray at some point during the fight. The 250-pound grizzly sow had evidence of bear spray on her. Mark Uptain was killed in spite of the bear spray. Carrying a semi-automatic pistol with an empty c...

Man Punches Black Bear In The Nose

In Western North Carolina: A Haywood County man says he battled a bear outside his home and he has the scrapes and bruises to prove it, WLOS reported. Sonny Pumphrey was in his driveway Tuesday afternoon when he says a mother bear and her two cubs showed up. He says the cubs ran off but the mother bear reared up and attacked him. “She made a charging dead run at me. That sucker was eyeball to eyeball to me,” he said. Pumphrey says he punched the bear in the nose, but then she dropped down and bi...

I had a close encounter with a grizzly bear

I've always felt a spiritual connection with grizzly bears. They're slow, chunky and have an overwhelming affection for peanut butter--just like I do. From time to time, I'm fortunate enough to spot one, or at least the signs of one's passing, while we're in Alberta. But, as they generally don't want anything to do with people, being able to spend a prolonged amount of time with one is an incredible treat. It's a treat that I had the opportunity to partake in earlier today. Around 30 minutes ...

Alaska’s Fat Bear Week contest

In the Alaskan bear community , there’s no such thing as fat shaming. When you’re the fattest bear in town, you not only guarantee a healthy hibernation, but also earn the prestige that comes with winning Fat Bear Week. On October 3rd, Katmai National Park and Preserve in King Salmon, Alaska, kicked off its tribute to its heftiest bears with this annual weeklong celebration of ursine girth. Organized in a bracket system, bears commonly seen on the park’s Bear Cam are pitted against each other ...

Why Hungry Polar Bears Could Start Devouring Dead Whales

Just over a year ago, more than 150 polar bears amassed on a remote island off the north coast Siberia to devour a dead bowhead whale that had washed ashore. It was the largest swarm of polar bears ever recorded feasting on a stranded whale—but events like this could become more common in a warmer world. Read more...

Watch this pair of brown bears fight over an elk carcass

I mean, it looks like an elk to me, but it could be a deer, too. In any event, I don't think I've ever felt as strong about leftovers as these two beasts do. I'm not advocating that anyone go out and take a bite out of a chunk of festering roadkill, but it does make you think.

Yellowstone grizzly bear hunt cancelled thanks to court ruling

In the midst of yet another shitty news cycle, it's nice to hear that great things can still happen. Earlier this year, the state of Wyoming said "yeah" to allowing a maximum of 22 grizzly bears, once sheltered as a protected species, to be hunted. Yesterday, U.S. District Court Judge Dana Christensen said "nah" to hunters gearing up to shoot at grizzly bears that call the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem home. From Earther: In his order, Christensen made clear that the case “is not about the eth...

Mama bear plops her cubs in a minivan in the hopes of a roadtrip

Look, if a bear can figure out how to open the door of a minivan and get her cubs seated for a ride, I don't think it's too much to ask that she be able to take those kids of hers on a cross-country roadtrip to Disneyland. Hand over the keys.

Live stream of bears catching salmon in Katmai National Park.

Via The New Yorker, "Bear Cam’s Captivating, Unedited Zen":On a recent afternoon, there were around ten bears on the cam, using a variety of techniques to stalk the salmon. Some stood downstream of the falls, upright and staring straight down into the water for fish to grab, almost as a person might do. The most dramatic were those that perched on the rocks at the top of the cascade, grabbing at the airborne salmon attempting to leap over and continue upstream. It’s innately satisfying to see a ...

A guerilla campaign to save grizzly bears in Wyoming is underway

Renowned environmentalist and chimpanzee buddy Jane Goodall has her fingers crossed: she’s entered the lottery to win the right to kill a grizzly bear in the area of Yellowstone Park. That Wyoming’s allowing the bears to be hunted is a big deal. There’s been a moratorium on taking down a grizzly bear in Wyoming for the past 44 years. This year, the state is allowing 22 of them to be killed by hunters. But, instead of taking down a furry behemoth so that she might eat its steaming heart to cele...

Bear In The House, But A Dog’s Love Knows No Bounds

Via correspondent Fred Tippens, NY Post: GROTON, N.H. — New Hampshire’s Fish and Game Department says a 71-year-old woman suffered serious head injuries from an encounter with a bear in her home.
