    But bears use the "Force" so martial arts wouldn't help

    It takes a big rifle bullet to penetrate that fur on a bear, you theory is flawed. A bear ain't agonna wait for that big chimp to chew threw it will knock him off long before it gets to the meat. The bears teeth and claws will pulverize the gorilla all over it's body

    There is such a huge discrepancy in grizzly bears. The gorilla may have a shot against some of the smaller ones. However I dont think there is an animal outside of some of Africas monsters (hippos elephant giraffe etc) that could handle a big kodiak bear

    I was at Busch Gardens in Tampa a few years ago when one of the gorillas got super pissed off about something. This gorilla took off in a sprint towards his enclosure and began beating on a steel door. The sound was just as loud as a shotgun. I would not want to be on the other end of that as one blow would probably be fatal.

    I don't have any interesting bear stories.

    Gorilla charging window at zoo. You can skip to about 1:10. Is it my imagination, or did the glass crack? Or maybe a video photoshop thing? If it really did crack, I think I'd be grabbing my kids and and saying, "Adios, MFers"

    What if the gorilla had a Glock 20? Or... a 44 magnum?

    Gorilla would need to be 18 years of age or older in many states to possess a handgun.

    Not sure he would be able to get a carry permit either.

    Conversely with the grizzly... Second Amendment... Right to bear arms.
