On our way to Fairbanks, Alaska, we stopped in Delta Junction for a break. I went into the local grocery store, an IGA Food Cache, for some warmth and to use the john. Imagine my surprise when the first thing I saw upon entering was this 8'10", 1400 pound Kodiak brown bear. Unfortunately, the owner reclaimed it and moved it to his sporting goods store in Wasilla, Alaska.
The trophy's owner was injured by this bear back in 1977. I guess he showed it who's boss.
