Man fined for trying to fight a grizzly bear

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

It's not every day a man tries to fight a grizzly bear.

But it appears that is what happened in Banff National Park in 2015 when Devin Mitsuing, 35, got out of his truck shirtless and began shouting at the young grizzly while in a "boxing stance" before charging at it, according to an eyewitness to the incident. 

Caught on camera by a couple of nearby photographers, who were taking pictures of the lone grazing grizzly on Highway 93 and called RCMP after the incident, Mitsuing was later located in Radium, B.C. by RCMP and a Park Warden and charged under the National Parks Act, for disturbing wildlife in a national park.

After two previous missed court dates, the case finally came to trial in the Canmore Provincial Courthouse Friday (Sept. 13) morning with Judge George Gaschler finding the Saskatchewan man guilty and imposing a $4,000 fine.

Shame the Grizzly didn't reduce the human population by one.

This guy was so foolish. He deserved what he got. It could have been a lot worse. Even a young grizzly has a paw the size of which you don't want to get swatted with. And many times, where there is a young grizzly, mama isn't too far away.

They should have let him go on with his  attack. Why not a pack of grizzlys next time...The Darwin award awaits this guy.  Maybe the attack looked like this?

Yes, a $4,000 fine and a few weeks in a psych hospital to help set him straight.

If this guy wasn't drunk or stoned, he needs a psych evaluation.
