    During a private "fly-in" fishing excursion in the Alaskan wilderness,

    the chartered pilot and fishermen left a cooler and bait in the plane,

    a bear smelled it.



    This is what the bear did to the plane.

    The pilot used his radio and had another pilot bring him

    Alaskans are very resourceful (spoken by a former Alaskan). I bet the pilot and fisherman are just glad they'd already vacated the plane before the bear arrived. :lol: :lol:

    So versatile! Make a prom dress/tuxes to fixing your airplane. Here we thought McGuyver made it up.

    Yeah, bears can be darn nasty! We had a bear attack our garbage can last summer....it wasn't a pretty site!!!! From now in, in the summer, I'm freezing leftovers that would normally go in the can until we haul to the dump. We had a neighbor have to shoot a bear that was trying to get in his house! Smart pilot that thought of the duct tape!! :thumbup:
