AK: Man uses .44 Mag to stop Charging Kodiak Bear
A Kodiak homeowner shot and killed a 9-foot-tall bear on his lawn after it charged him. The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports Tuesday Hamilton Long fired six rounds at the 1,000-pound bear. Alaska State Troopers Kodiak Post supervisor Sgt. Eric Olsen says Long emptied the cylinder of his .44 Magnum revolver. He says an investigator determined Long acted in self-defense.
