Mmmm, many of those "giant" bears are fake pictures, taken from tricky angles and with the hunter very far from the dead bear.

Dirty tricks from people that think that killing animals will give them importance in they little and nasty worlds. [img]images/smilies/dodgy.gif[/img]

Yes, hunters are always seeking bragging rights and often through underhanded means. however, the article I posted I'm thinking is authentic; stating that Ussiri brown bears can measure up to from 8 to 8.5 feet long.

You would have to register first. That's something that I haven't done yet either, but probably will do soon.

Figured, I'd be curious what the hunting records are, but don't think I want to contribute to them.

A young bear cub from Kurilskiy Nature Reserve , Russia died as he fall down from cliff.
Young bears, especially just weaned from her mother, often perish from the clutches of the adult males, inexperience (go into hibernation in awkward places) or through negligence.

Quick question, Warsaw says that two other ussuri bears have been weighed and one is 250kg and the other 350kg, are these reliable and should you use them for your table you created?

We need sources and verifications on those alleged weights and measurements and then I will happily inform guate to apply them to the comparison if those are provided.

БУРЫЕ МАРАФОНЦЫ
Всего за восемь лет радиомаячки были надеты на шеи более четырех десятков медведей двух видов. Особенно активно косолапые стали попадаться в петли, когда ученые начали раскладывать возле ловушек пахучую приманку, к примеру, порченое мясо или рыбу. Правда, были отдельные умники, поедавшие всю приманку, но при этом умело обходившие все петли. Рекордсменами по весу оказались бурые самец - более 350 кг и самка - 222 кг. Среди гималайцев самым тяжелым оказался самец весом в 205 кг, а самочка - 101 кг. Есть у меченых медведей и рекордсмены по возрасту. Некоторым животным уже перевалило за 20 лет.

250 kg = 551 pounds and 350 kg = 772 pounds. These bears are still within the size range of inland grizzlies of North America although those of the far north are smaller, very rarely reaching 500 pounds. Establishing an average weight for brown bears is an ordeal and probably never accurate.

Why Warsaw never translate his sources???

For the first source, he most present the document itself or image of it, period.

The second source seems reliable, but the name of the author could not be properly translated by Google Translator, and I can't found the date of the article. Warsaw most present the translated name of the author, the date and the translated name of the article, in order to quote it properly.

Only two weights can be used: male of 350 kg and female of 222 kg. The male of 205 kg and the female of 101 kg are from other area.

I agree, I don't like them not being translated either.
Its difficult to translate large amount of text.

Well, In Carnivora, @Pckts show us that Warsaw and now @WaveRiders are in a run discrediting @peter and I, showing our mistakes and painting them like if it were the end of the world.

The mistake was the inclusion of a bear from another location in the group of Ussuri bears. Well, here is the solution, we just put it out and there is no issue anymore.

Here is, again, the comparative image of the Amur tiger and the Ussuri bear.


*This image is copyright of its original author


I can't include the figures of Warsaw because they are not properly translated and sometimes, Google translator don't make good translations with the last names. If Warsaw provide it, there will be no problem in include it (last name of the author and date of the article), and if he had more data on Ussiri bears, it will be good if he share it, in a good manner of course.

Now, the problem is the form that Waveriders present those mistakes, with posts full of hate, even other posters in Carnivora see this.

I have say many times, we are not perfect, not even real scientists are out of making mistakes. However, a normal person could present those mistakes "here" in this forum and not in a completely different place where we don't go (If Pckts don't tell us, we were ignorant of those posts). In this form, we can see that the objective of Waveriders is not to "correct" those mistakes, but just affect our reputation.

It is sad to see that what was a good posted in AVA (when we never enter in hard discussions) became in an insane poster here and in Carnivora. I feel pity for you Wave. :neutral-fill:

It is interesting too that this comparative image of bear and tiger caused more trouble than that of lions, however this is because of these two posters from Carnivora, which obviously have personal issues with us, for no apparent reason.

I have been out of town, so I haven't seen any thing on carnivora in a while.

They prefer to grab a hold of one mistake as oppose to seeing the immense amount of work that went in to it as well as all the other reliable information attached to it.

Like "whether or not amur where measured in straight line" and using a single image of a sub adult tigress which doesn't even say if it was measured over the curves or not, then use it to completely discredit all the other weights used or the comparison. Its been quite the eye opener in some of these debates, I try not in involve any one else to fight my battles, I just want to make sure the information I use is correct.
