That may be true DNS, but a friend of mine had a hunter he was guiding in Montana disturb a bear on a elk carcass and the bear proceeded to maul him. David ran over and shot the bear four times in the side point blank with a 44 magnum. The bear got off the man before the man was mortally wounded.
The wildlife offficers accused them of trying to poach the bear, interrogated them in separate rooms, refused to renew the outfitters license for several months, etc.
And they didn't even have a dead bear. Never found him if it killed him at all. Trailed it for several miles in the snow and gave up.
The attitude at that time was that if you killed a grizzly you had better have tooth marks to back you up.
Little much I always thought.
