This British Columbia man had a terrifying confrontation with a charging grizzly in his front yard and ended up shooting the bear while it was feet away.
more contextWithout additional context, that looks an awful lot like him leaving his home to shoot that bear with birdshot and provoking her into charging. Obviously wasn't his intent to cause serious harm or he would've been loaded with buckshot. From the looks of it though the whole situation couldve been avoided if he stayed inside and shot from the house, didn't shoot at all, or did anything other than the elmer fudd walk across the lawn
Again, without context or being there all we are doing is speculating
Certainly an interesting story, defintely sheds some light on the context. Still skeptical on the technique however...
