try doing that now with a full grown bear.
grizzleys weigh over 1000lbs. black bear females weigh 300-400lb.
males could weigh 600-700lb.If they were tame (big cats and bears) it would be fun to wrestle them! I used to do powerlifting and strong man, weighing over 111KG, and submission grappling. Do you think that would be ok??
I'm not suggesting that I would beat then hahahahaha. Maybe a fun exercise, wrestling with no claws or teeth???
very very cruel to remove the teeth of any animal. I promise you, even if you power lift 24 hours a day, you will never over power a bear.
I can give you an example of how strong they are. on part of my bears enclosure, I had a couple 4x8 iron panels over the fence. they were actually able to pull that off, bend in it up in about 6 folds. my bears are black bears, so, image what a brown bear could do.
not sure if you heard about the guy that made friends with grizzleys in the wild. (can't remember the guys name)
this guy knew to keep his distance. he followed them for several years. then one day, a grizzley ate this guy.
again, owning any large exotic, is a must the owner completely understands their behavior and even at that
it don't guarantee the bear or big cat won't attack.
also, when you own these type of animals, skip any vacations. you most likely will not find someone to watch them,
even if you do, you shouldn't leave them with someone the bears don't know well.
I hope you plan on doing a lot of research on any large exotics. you seem to lack a lot of understanding of owning them.
they are a lot of work, expensive and are dangerous.
There is a big misunderstanding. I asked about the wrestling purely out of curiosity; Ash was quick on the draw to educate me that wrestling is a no no.. The posted video was AS SAID PREVIOUSLY, PURELY FOR COINCIDENCE SAKE! As I saw it RIGHT after; emailed from my brother. When those "coincidences" happen, I find one should make the most of them.
I will reiterate, NO, I don't think I would overpower or "BEAT" an adult bear in a fight or wrestling. No ego match there... Please, let there be no confusion there
Likewise, hope you know I know that was a cub... Haha. I doubt if I didn't know that was a cub, I'd have the common sense to make it to this forum hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! As well as posting previously that they can get 1000 pounds, well aware of that.
Hope all is cleared up. I definitely have started lower on the learning curve, thats why I'm here now! There is NO intent to grab one of these guys and fight them, or buy them like some "pet" immediately.
I am double majoring in Biophysics and Engineering Physics, those will take up much time! As Ash and I talked on the big cat forum, with time constraints and what not; one needs to build up. I am starting with a Lynx. Then can decide from there.
Hope that clears everything up
P.s. Also, I NEVER mentioned removing teeth??? Not sure where this came from? I've never pulled my bears canines... Probably because I don't have a bear
