Friend just shared this post on FB. Dunno if I beleive the claim of height at the shoulder. But still, looking at the paw that's a damn big bear!

https://www.facebook...732146676795629

"These pictures are of a man who works for the US Forest Service in Alaska, and his trophy bear.

He was deer hunting last week when the large grizzly charged him from 
about 50 yards away. The guy emptied his 7mm Magnum semi-automatic 
rifle into the bear and it dropped a few feet from him. The big bear was 
still alive so the hunter reloaded and shot it several times in the head.

The bear was just over one thousand six hundred pounds. It stood 
12' 6' high at the shoulder, 14' to the top of his head. It is the 
largest grizzly bear ever recorded in the world.

The Alaska Fish and Wildlife Commission did not let him keep it as a trophy, of course; but the bear will be stuffed and mounted, and placed on display at the Anchorage airport to remind tourists of the risks involved in the wild.

Analyzing contents of the bears stomach, the Fish and Wildlife Commission established the bear had killed at least two humans in the past 72 hours, including a hiker missing two days prior to the bear's own death.

Backtracking from where the bear had originated, the US Forest Service 
found the hiker's emptied 38-caliber pistol. Not far from the pistol was 
the remains of the hiker. The other body has not been found.

Although the hiker fired six shots and managed to hit the grizzly with four 
(that the Service ultimately retrieved, along with twelve 7mm slugs, 
inside the bear's body), it only wounded the bear and probably angered 
it immensely.

Think about this :

If you are an average size man, you would be level with the bear's navel 
when he stood upright. The bear would look you in the eye when it walked on all fours! To give additional perspective, this bear, standing on its hind legs, could walk up to an average single story house and look over the roof; or stand beside a two story house and look in the upper 
bedroom windows.

NOTE:

I would like to point out that the Padres at San Antonio Mission in California had a plaster cast of a bear's foot the was 14" across and a tracing on parchment that was 16" across, which would make it bigger than this bear. JB"

Roger that. Thank you for the insight, will let the fella who originally shared it know.  Yeah... I didn't think that claim if 12'6" was possible.

Big bear... I believe it was 10 1/2' and if you want to get technical it was a Brown Bear from S/E Alaska. Ed F

Two problems with that story: Facebook and a 7mm handgun. No one uses either of those anymore.

I heard it was 13'4" while doing a doggy stretch or whatever yoga poses Cali Griz's do. When killed,it had already eaten 3 Dems, 2 Chihuahuas, and a Chupacabra before being shot 142 times with a .177 caliber air riffle. That's what I heard....

From what I have read, the last California Griz was actually shot in Holy Jim Canyon in OC.
