    Survivorman Les Stroud: A Comic Book Hero?

    By Ben Romans

    For several years, outdoor survival expert Les Stroud has been a one-man camera crew who filmed his multi-day jaunts into remote areas of the world. I’ve tuned in from time to time. The episodes are occasionally entertaining, and I often learn a thing or two.
    But would I go so far as to say Stroud’s skills make him a real-life superhero? Certainly not. However, the folks at Bluewater Productions disagree. So much so they’re willing to pit Stroud’s MacGyver-esque skills against wrongdoers in a new comic book series.
    In a press release, Bluewater said the first edition will follow Stroud in pursuit of an artifact and in the chase, he gets lost at sea, roughs it through the English countryside, and "shows an endless supply of rugged determination in his quest."

    Proponents of drones say the units are a valuable resource that provides an unmatched level of surveillance. But critics point out that monitoring individuals without probable cause or a warrant amounts to an invasion of privacy.

    Woman Clubs Bear with Shotgun, Saves Husband

    By CJ Lotz

    A Wisconsin man, realizing a 200-pound bear was about to attack his dog, ran outside and tried to scare the bear off, but the bear tackled him and sunk its teeth into his neck. When the man’s wife realized what was happening outside, she grabbed a shotgun, but didn’t know how to load it, so she ran outside and clubbed the bear over the head. Stunned, the bear fell away from the man long enough for the couple to run inside the cabin. Officials arrived shortly after and shot the bear.

    By CJ Lotz

    A study out of the University of California, Santa Cruz suggests that flexibility in diet might have given wolves and bears an edge that left saber-tooth cats and cave lions in the evolutionary dust.
