A 300-lb bear broke into Colfax County, New Mexico, rancher
Jim Marchetti's home, helping himself to a free meal. Several days
later, the bear was back. This time Marchetti was ready for him.
Awakened by his barking dog at 3 a.m., Marchetti grabbed a
flashlight and his .44 Mag. and went to investigate. He found the
bruin in the kitchen. "...he looked right at me and started to rise
up. I wasn't sure what that look meant, whether he was going to
come at me or go the other way. I helped him make up his mind."
The wounded bear escaped; Marchetti tracked it and finished it off
the next morning.
