    Rick Mercer is awesome, he's always going to these sorts of strange jobs across the country.

    Cool job.

    Well, we do live in a freezer for 8 months out of the year...

    I'm in NS and we just came out of a week of cold. Nothing like the west, but it's damp--and that makes a difference.

    A few days of -30+ with wind chill. Brr.

    That was a small adult bear, 140lbs?
    Very quiet, perhaps kind of sleepy.

    For size comparison, I usually think of bears as bigger than they may actually be in real life. But then this photo is how I usually think of them for size.


    I have seen other pictures of massive Kodiak bears.

    The short faced bear would have been a real terror to see in the flesh, which likely early man did, thankfully they are no longer around. I also appreciate that the large carnivorous dinosaurs have also gone extinct. Very large carnivorous animals need lots of space and lots and lots of food.

    The South American giant short-faced bear roamed its namesake continent about 500,000 to 2 million years ago and would have been the largest and most powerful meat-eater on land at the time, scientists say.

    Judging by their measurements of the baby, and given that it's Canada it was probably 145 kilos, so about 320 lbs.

    Greatly depends on the area of Canada you live in

    Here in Quebec it can get quite cold but we've all adjusted too it.
