Not so bearproof suit ripped apart
Another in a long line of 'bear suits', invented by the crazy Canadian Troy Hurtubise was ripped to shreds after seeming to scare the Kodiak bear test subject. The bear's trainer didn't want to have Hurtubise in the same cage as the bear, but agreed to have a suit on a dummy tested with his bear. Mr. Hurtubise said, after the chain mail suit was ripped to pieces "I should have used shark chainmail. Instead, I sent away for butcher's chainmail from France." He's now planning a full contact test in the spring of 2002 .
