    STAHLER: Yeah, once the bear leaves and goes into willows the wolves’ postures change and they seem content that the bear is out of the way and the threat is removed. We have had wolves kill bears in Yellowstone. It is extremely rare and it’s usually cubs-of-the-year, but they don’t targetbears as food.
    http://planetjh.com/2013/09/11/wolf-vs-bear-showdown/

    Wolves are thought to have killed two grizzly bear cubs in 2001, and they have probably killed other bear cubs without anyone noticing. Wolves have also been able to kill at least one adult male black bear that appeared to be healthy.

    Go back to the chat section and look at this thread, on the size it says replies and views, even for a small amount of replies theres already about 3,000 views...look at the average thread compared to reply an view rate, seems like your claim that nobody is reading it is false. Many people are.

    Seems like you just came into to pun the bear over the lion, but with nothing to go off, you resort into flamboyant emptiness.

    I dont got a problem with bears, I use to think that larger bears would win more often, now its alot closer than I thought. and declawed? So they pulled the teeth out and declawed the wild bears who fought the wolves and pumas too? lol If a puma can merk a bear, so can a lion who is vastly more powerful than a 200 pound cougar. And everyone knows this except you then. lol

    it states here baltimore killed a valuable bear:


    the valuable russian grizzly, was noted to be 900 lbs

    Daniel boone had 3 fights occur:Fight 1:A lion named Parnell fought and killed a bear named monarc
    h

    The large pit dog in the ground to hold the huge grizzly bear, Monarch, is completed. He will now have an opportunity of putting himself in good condition in his proposed fight with the man-eating lion, Parnell. A good many people are under the impression the bear would stand no show. Well, if one saw the size of this monster, be would think the show was all on his side. He is really the largest bear ever bald in captivity, and is as furious as he appears. In my opinion the trick lion, Parnell, notwithstanding bis reputation for killing people, would soon be made into mincemeat. The Monarch weighs in the neighborhood of 1750 pounds, besides baying claws' fully four inches in length. Perhaps a fresh lion from the wilds of Africa might succeed in besting tbe bruin, but the belief existing in regard to tbe lions at the grounds is that they would be no match for tbe mighty roamer of the Sierras. Colonel Boone is now arranging with tbe authorities for the fight. Should tbe fight take place, which is doubtful, the assurance is that one of the most desperate battles that ever took place in the anuals of the country will be seen at the lion arena on the grounds.

    Round two:But Colonel Boone was not satisfied and he arranged another meeting. He starved the animals some more, and fetched them together again. He tried a new scheme. He pitched the bear a chunk of meat The lion promptly waltzed up and grabbed it, and the bear stood for his work. Another bologna was tossed to the representative of California prowess. The lion got up front where he was gnawing his calf’s liver and annexed that too, and the bear never made a protest. The bear seemed to have quit flat at the start. The contest was awarded to the lion on default and the bear was drummed out of the fighting fraternity. But Colonel Boone still holds his opinion about the California grizzly. Parnell was afterwards fought against four bulls, one at a time, and in the last encounter lost his life. The first bovine gladiator was old, and he was killed easily by the lion- The second and third made a better fight, but were put out of time in a little while, the fourth bull caught Parnell in the mouth with its horn and drove the horn up through the roof of the mouth into the lion's brain, killing him.

    A few years ago an Englishman who had hunted lions In Africa ventured, upon a visit here, to express the opinion that an African lion could whip a grizzly in fair fight. His' opinion was so warmly disputed by partisans of the grizzly that he determined to settle the matter. He brought a full grown lion to this Park and it was put into a cage'along with a grizzly. The lion at once sprang to the attack^ leaping upon the bear's' back and trying to dig in with claws and teeth. The grizzly sincerely shook him off.The lion again sprang and was again shaken off. A third time it was shaken off, but this time the lion, annoyed, gave it a swipe with one of its paws, and broke its back. killing it with a single blow.

    King of swedens Barbary lion kills a european brown bear with one blow:


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_I_of_Sweden

    The king, of whom I have just narrated so many anecdotes, had a very large lion‘ presented to him by one of the Barbary powers. There were at this time several bears kept by the butchers about the shambles in Stockholm, and his majesty, being anxious to witness a rencontre between one of these animals and the lion, ordered them to be brought into contact with each other. lu the lion's den there were two apartments, into one of which the bear was introduced. On the lion, however, getting access to that animal, he found him posted in a corner; when, going up to him, he gave him a slight rap with his paw, as if to see of what materials his visiter was composed. The bear, not liking this kind of salutation, growled, and endeavoured to parry it. This made the lion angry: when, ‘ with one- fell swoop,‘ with -his paw, as the story goes, he laid the bear dead at his feet.

    Fight between 3 lionesses and 3 bears:

    From Lemberg the Vienna correspondent of the 'Daily News' learns that a terrible battle has been fought at the railway sta tion at Rawaruska. A menagerie was being conveyed by rail, and when the train stopped at the station a great noise was heard. The guards went to the wagons containing the wild beasts, and found the wooden partitions which separated three lionesses from three bears, and these again from three hyenas broken down and the animals engaged in battle. One bear was missing. The lions had eaten him, skin and all. They had bitten another bear's paw off, and a hyena lay dead on the floor. Two lions in a' neighboring compartment remained calm. No one dared interfere between the fighting beasts, until the owner arrived in a sledge and -se- parated them — not before he had been bitten by a bear however. - He claims damages from the. railway administration because the partitions gave way. One of the judges, or presidents, of the Tribunal of the Seine in Paris has acquired celebrity owing to the rapidity with which he disposes of the divorce cases brought before him.

During a performance last night at Mundy'a menagerie here, Negro, ths big African lion, broke into the cage of the polar bear and s Here fight followed.

    An exciting scence was enacted at a performance recently given by a travelling menagerie at Kronenberg. the animals, three lions and a bear, were kept in cages divided from each other by iron partitions, and went through their tricks when the keeper entered their various compartments, The man, ingoing from the lions'cage into tho bear'a cage, inadvortently left tho communicating door unlatched.: The lions rushed into tho bear's den after the keeper, and, growling savagely, fell upon the bear with one accord, That unfortunate beast made a brave stand against its three opponents, and tried to hug' them all in succsssion,. but was completely overpowered by numbers. The keoper bad a marvellous escape; the beasts, as they rolling over each other in their desperate struggle, several times nearly crushing him against the bars of tho cage; but, seizing a favourable momont, he managed to slip through into tho next den. With the assistance of the owner of the show, the man at last succeeded in driving the lions into their own comparment by means of long iron bars, The bear died a few hours afterwards, being almost torn to pieces by the lions' claws, The tent at the time of the accident was crowded, and several persons were hurt in the rush to get out at the narrow doorway.

Then a pitiful cry came from the bear and blood began to flow into the sand. The lion stood over him, gnawing at the bear's throat. Out into the middle of the arena came men with nets, quietly approaching the victorious lion to throw their nets over him and drag him away.

    No biges, when others are ready to post they can add to it or challenge it, just showing some stuff you can hardly find any where else on the web away from fan made retorts.

    As for the debate, I think those 1,200+ lb bears would be the lions most formidable adversary's of any predatory competitor in combat and would suspect them to win there shares as well, but I only try to go off of actual accounts.
