Nine foot tall grizzly shot by Alaskan hunter is the largest bear EVER killed

An Alaska hunter killed a nearly 9-foot-tall grizzly bear last year that was officially named on Friday the largest ever bagged.
Check it out:

Larry Fitzgerald, 35, was out hunting with friends near Fairbanks when they spotted the behemoth and tracked it for three hours before Fitzgerald took it down with a single shot to the neck from 20 yards.

‘We knew it was big,’ he said. ‘It was a rush.’

Shockingly, the group of hunters weren’t even out looking for bears, much less trophy-winning bears, when they spotted the monster.

They were searching for moose.
