Bear-Proof Suit Batting .500

In the battle of duct tape against nature, the score is Bears 1: Suit 1.

According to The New Scientist, which has been diligently tracking this important story, a female grizzly was so put off by the bizarre appearance that she wouldn't even approach it.

The bad news is that the much-larger male grizzly did come up to the empty suit, and started jumping on it and tearing it apart. The suit's owner/designer was pleased to be viewing the ursine adventure from afar.

Hurtubise has learned that you should never skimp on chainmail. "I should have used shark chainmail," he now laments. "Instead, I sent away for butcher's chainmail from France."

Yes, those cheese eaters haven't made good chainmail since the Battle of Hastings. Plus, he may have skimped on the duct tape. You should never do that...

I wouldn't put pepper spray on the suit before getting in the ring.
