1000 Ways to Die is an American television series which recreates unusual deaths, near-deadly accidents (using pseudonyms for involved parties), and death-related urban legends, then includes interviews experts and witnesses who discuss the subject matter in depth. Originally airing on Spike in 2008, the show was cancelled after its fourth season in 2012 when the show's producers and stars went on strike.[1]

1000 Ways to Die and furry[edit]

Season 1 episode 4, "Death Over Easy", featured a segment entitled #412: "Em-Bear-Assed", which covered an alleged April 16, 2001 incident in the Mojave Desert near Palmdale, California.

The incident involved a man who wandered the desert under the influence of magic mushrooms in order to get in touch with his "inner dog", and had come across a group of furries engaged in sexual encounters around a campfire.

He tried to join into the orgy, but was rebuffed, and then mistook a nearby brown bear as a human participant; he was then mauled to death.


The segment was criticized by furries for having depicted furries in an oversexualized light.[2]
