    Dear Mods,

    What happened to EDelaney's post that was referring me to a

    LINK that was inappropriate.

    Should there be an apology to all those who happen to see it?

    I'm just wondering when a post calling people jerks will be locked or edited...

    Do I have to pull this car over?! Give it a rest.

    Interesting story! I'd not likely volunteer to wrestle a bear, even if tame!

    Wojtek, what an awesome story!
    I'd go one further than Raimius tho, I wouldn't wrestle a tame and drunk bear...
    What would PETA do???

    I love this story. I read the children's book (on this story) with my son and have been looking for the 'adult' version. Tried to buy it from Amazon (used - but the seller ended up not shipping it to us). I need to look again. My son has always loved bears and bear stories. With him now in the army, I know that he will really enjoy this story. Thanks for posting the video. He will love watching it.

    @cga82 - just ordered a new paperback copy. Even found a vendor from my state. There are several right now on Amazon.

    Just make sure to order from a US vender (assuming that you are in the US) as there are also several British vendors and if you order from them, you'll incur additional fees.
    There is also an older hardcover version of the book if that interests you. I went with the new paperback because it is my understanding that it contains an epilogue.
