- 900 Pound Grizzly.
- Grizzly is as mad as it would be defending its cubs.
- Who wins?
Wooden or metal bats won't do more than annoy an adult grizzly. Even hitting it on the head won't do more than get its attention. The front of an adult's skull will stop a bullet from an m1911 45 caliber pistol using ball ammunition. Hits from bats anywhere else will largely be absorbed by the coat.
The best the men could do is dogpile on it and try to choke it out with one of the bats. Another could go for the eyes while the rest (among those still alive) do what little they can to try and restrain it. It will take perfect teamwork though, and they need to all be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice if it comes to it.
Assuming these are healthy fairly muscular guys, a full powered hit to a bears face (especially to the eyes and jaw) would not just be an annoyance lol. This bear would be dazed and if they can jam a bat down it’s throat or impair it’s vision with a lethal swing that’s GG.
Here's a thought: Imagine that someone could start this as a type of sport. Assume there's no problem with animal rights people, and the government is ok with is at long as the people competing all sign appropriate wavers. Ok, so you give $1,000,000 to anyone who wants to be on the team fighting the bear. And/or you get tell prisoners that they can be in this and if they survive they're sentences will be commuted to time served.
How many people would actually be willing to do this for the money? Or, how many prisoners would take this up?
Which teams would do better, one made up of all paid men, or one made up of all prisoners?
If you think the 15 men with bats have no chance, what weapon do you think would be just enough to give them a 50/50 chance?
People are saying bear?! Was it fewer men before?
15 men absolutely butcher a bear, 10 would be more than enough.. A couple of strong swings to the head would daze or even knock out the bear, a swing to the jaw would break its teeth/jaw. I think you all are underestimating just how devastating a baseball bat swing can be.
Men can win this. There are cases of people legitimately killing a bear on their own without weapons. 15 men allow enough distraction so that a few can get swings in on its head and eyes. I’d assume a few would get hurt or killed but 15 is a lot of ppl
@jashro44: actually yes. This article reports a man killing one with his teeth https://huckberry.com/journal/posts/man-kills-grizzly-with-hands-and-teeth
That's pretty hardcore. However I don't think that dude is normal. Most normal people wouldn't think to bite at the bears jugular and probably wouldn't get the chance. The article also doesn't mention if that is a full grown Grizzly or not.
@jashro44: agreed he was probably more feral than the bear lol. My point is regardless of the animal there are strength in numbers and larger creatures have been taken down by less. I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility for 15 guys to find a way to beat a grizzly
The number gap is waaay too big.
Tell me how 15 men do anything to a bloodlusted grizzly bear, using only baseball bats? I'm sure a swing hits harder than a kick from a horse, or a bite from a wolf, or a paw swipe from another grizzly bear
