On the Trail of a Grizzly

Grizzly bears are at least as wild as any North American game animal, and unlike our antlered or horned beasts, they will at times turn the tables and hunt the hunter. And grizzlies are uniquely equipped to do so: Big, old boars can weigh up to 750 pounds, are unfathomably strong and come armed with fangs and claws. Despite their size, bears can sprint like deer for short stretches, except that they may well decide to sprint toward the threat rather than away.
