Russian cosmonauts used to pack a Soviet pistol in case they landed in Siberia and had to fend off bears.

This is a Caucasian Mountain Dog (aka Russian Bear Dog). The males reach over 200lb and have historically been used to hunt bears.

During WWI, a Canadian soldier smuggled his bear ‘Winnipeg’ into Britain, and she later became an attraction at a London Zoo. A boy named Christopher Robin Milne loved ‘Winnie’ so much that he named his own teddy after her, inspiring his father to write stories about a silly old bear who loves honey.

In 1985, a bear was found dead after consuming 76 pounds ($15 million worth) of cocaine. Today he’s known as ‘Cocaine Bear.’

After being attacked by a bear, a grandmother sewed-up her scalp, set her dislocated legs, then killed the bear — and ate it.
