It's my story and if I choose to tell it with bears, it was bears.

Ft. Stevens for those interested. Killed it with razor clamming right inside the park north of the shipwreck, and also pulled in 3 dungeness crabs off the inside of the jetty (and saw 3 Coho/Silver salmon nabbed while we were there).

That is terrifying!
Look at the size of those horrible claws.
It is a good thing the attack was limited to the cooler.

I've seen that cooler in the back of Pinstriper's truck. The ruler marks on the top are in feet, not inches; it's a huge cooler. It's where he keeps all the fish he catches (hence the interest by the grizzly). I'm glad he survived to tell the tale.

Great Fish n Bear story; I buy it! Have those same darn Bears here in Florida; especially in Juniper Springs,  in the Ocala National Forest.
