[quote]Saw a report on PBS about two guys studying grizzly in Alaska. they were using leg hold snares too. They would tranquilize the bears and install radio collars.
One got after them and they had to shoot it. They were disapointed over having to do so but realistic enough to know it had to be done. You have to be in close proximity to do their work and it is only a matter if time before one of then taks a run at you. One of them was carrying a 12ga pump gun and the other a rifle, the caliber i do not remember./quote]
interesting... an environmental group that actually knows what they are doing. i want to see a PETA sponsored enviromental group try to catch and study bears that would be the funniest thing to watch...
