    Grizzly bear used in Will Ferrell comedy kills trainer in California

    [size=13pt]Grizzly bear used in Will Ferrell comedy kills trainer in California[/size]

    When friends Linda Carter and Cherrie Giles booked a three-day retreat in a remote cabin in the San Bernardino Mountains, the proprietor told them not to be startled by the roar of lions and bears from the exotic animal-training center nearby.

    The women fell asleep to the roars the first night, but on Tuesday they were startled by a different sound - a loud, urgent yell. About 30 minutes later, sirens pierced the calm as paramedics rushed to an animal trainer who had been bitten on the neck by a 700-pound, 7½-foot-tall grizzly bear. Stephan Miller, 39, died at the scene.

    I can't believe Linda Carter didn't change into Wonder woman and catch that bear with her golden lasso.

    Even if you think you have them tamed, they are still wild animals.
    I feel sorry for the guy's family, but I also feel sorry for the bear which will probably be killed now.
    Rock out with your cock out!!!
