“Rehabilitate or murder”

Films: Grizzly Park (2008)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Forest

Height/Weight: That of an average human for the killer, that of a Kodiak bear for the other.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: Bears. You either really adore them, fear them more than any other animal, or both. But no matter how many security dolls or bumbling cartoon characters get made out of them, never forget that they're the most powerful predatory mammals out there for a reason.

History: At a rehabilitation place known as Grizzly Park, several misfits of society are brought to engage in some nice outdoors and community service. Their crimes range from minor pranks to white supremacy, so as you can imagine, few tears will be shed when shit inevitably hits the fan. And it does, because despite what the sign might say, Grizzly Park is not fully depleted of bears. It only says that all the GRIZZLYS are dead. There's a big Alaskan Kodiak one lurking about killing everyone in horrifically brutal ways. Oh, and the wolves are no better either, so stay alert.

Notable Kills: Eats a guy ensnared in a bear trap, smacks off the upper half of the head of a guy in a bear suit, rips a girl in perfectly in half, and...see Final Fate.

Final Fate: Eventually, only one survivor is left, and as she gloats about wanting to kill the ranger that brought them all here next, the bear shows up, and swipes out her side, taking out one of her breast implants in the process (how many times to you see that). It is revealed that the ranger trained the bear to kill them all to make them pay for their crimes, and he pins it on a serial killer that the bear had killed earlier.

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-It's a bear, so it can be killed. Of course, there is the issue about it being a f*cking bear! An animal that can take your limbs off with a slap. And boy howdy, this bear is perhaps one of the most violent we've ever seen in a film. And worse, it had to learn that from a human. At least their relationship is a sound one. Just don't be surprised if this ursa goes all "Grizzly Man" on that guy someday.

Trivia: -This film was the first role for Brody, a Kodiak bear often considered to be the successor to the famous Bart the bear.

-The Kodiak bear is actually much larger than the grizzly, only topped by the polar bear. They tend to avoid people, but that's becoming much harder with how much we expand into their habitat, and like any bear, an encounter can result in a mauling if it gets spooked or hungry.

Cue a distorted rim-shot.

"Yeah, don't ask about my Cousin Yogi."
This correction shall be bathed in honey and blood.

Don't forget a sudden urge to run away if something taller than it shows up.
Even your bamboo shoots aren't safe! Wait...wrong bear.
