    Just curious? Obviously there are different types of lions and bears, but if you took the baddest lion and the baddest bear, who would win. I reckon the Lion would.

    I would be inclined to say lion too, but grizzlies can be really quick, and are incredibly strong.

    It would be a good fight :)

    A Kodiac bear would knock the head off any lion in one swing.

    It'd be a good fight. Probably the bear, though.

    depends... face to face, bear would prob'ly win... but since when do lions go face to face...? they hide, pounce, and break necks... both are strong and can be quick...

    Have you seen how big some of those Serengeti lions get? They take down wildebeest and zebra, which are both big animals.

    Where's that thread with the mutant Lion/Tiger mix?
    That thing would own a bear.

    NOT. Probably too slow and fat. Grizzly would be quick, still larger than a huge Liger or Tigon, and take an unbelievable amount of punishment.

    Result: Against an angry Grizzly, a Liger, Tigon <insert any animal or human with 9mm here> = 0wn3d

    If it were a Grizzley, then hands down bear. Absolutely.

    If the lion managed to get on top of the bear, the bear would be toast. The lion will pounce on its prey and bite it in the skull, crushing it, or by the neck, breaking it. Mind you, the bear does have a heavy skull.

    Still, what about a Siberian Tiger, or Bengal Tiger? The tiger would own.

    Definitely the bear. It's coat is so thick, i really can't see what the lion can do... unless it gets lucky and locks down on the throat.

    As if you'd have the composure to face a charging (read: MOVING QUICKLY!) Grizzly and manage to get a bullet or two through that thick skull in the exact right place...
