Which Bat? Metal or Wooden? If it’s the former, The Men could win but with heavy casualties

If it’s wooden, Bear Slaughters them

Even with metal bats, bashing them on the bear's thick fur/hide would most likely prove fatal for the men.

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.

Questions:

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

Wolves pressure bears in numbers. Men stomp, it's attention will be too divided and it will be wary of getting hit

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.

15 grown men could pin the grizzly down. The men take this with few casualties. Drop it down to 5-10 men and its a better fight.

While the bear is busy trying to maul one person, he's constantly getting Molly whopped in his face with what's probably a metal bat by maybe 5 or so men with the rest probably attacking his legs or other vulnerable part of it. The men win for sure. A decent number of them leave the fight with critical injuries but they'd beat that bear down to a point it just might leave its kids behind just to stop getting smacked in the head so much.

@demightysquidge: A bear isn't walking off a grown man swinging a metal bat to its head. Their heads being able to potentially stop bullets is one thing, since bullets are piercing attacks. A metal bat is blunt force and that bear would take serious amounts of damage from the blunt force from a handful of men swinging metal bats to its head. It could get crushed.

Well the bear is too fast for the men to handle even with metal baseball bats. If it's a ranged weapon like guns then they could win easily but if it's a melee weapon then they have no chance.

Yeah no, the man was instantly killed. He was dead in seconds after he hit the ground. There was no try.

Also, no person would want to be anywhere near a bears face, and I don't care how bloodlusted the human is. A 900 lb bear would one-shot a human with his paw swipe and 7+ inch claws.

No Caption Provided

Humans, like primates, have muscles and blood vessels closely attached to the skin, so we're very susceptible to bleeding from cuts and tears.

For example, a 120 lb leopard can take off a man's scalp with a single swipe

No Caption Provided

A 900 lb grizzly bear has way longer claws and is leaps and bounds more powerful than that pussy cat, the force of the paw alone should crush a man's skull

Actually PSI wise a swing from a baseball bat would probably be quite a bit higher than a bite from a wolf, but Bear's have good blunt force durability, so a wolf bite might do more damage just because it might be able to cut an artery. Though a wolf bite would probably do practically nothing to a 900 lb grizzly as well.

According to this article the swing of a baseball bat from a major league player is over 8,000 lbs of force, and above any living animal, but below a T-rex.

A horse kick supposedly has 2,000 lbs of force, so that would be less as well.

Not saying the men win this though.

That's based on a controlled environment where a human has time and space to fully wind up and hit a non-living projectile that only went one direction and didn't dodge or attack.

If a horse had to kick a test dummy that didn't move, and had all the time in the world to wind up it's kick, it would make a baseball bat look like a noodle in comparison.

Also, a wolf can take a kick from a horse as well. A 900 lb grizzly bear would no-sold that kick, let alone a baseball bat from squishy glass cannon humans who would be oneshotted by any attack from the bear.
