Beorn vs. Hagrid Can't Post

I got another one. Tongue Okay, so Hagrid is wondering around the forest and runs into Beorn. Would they battle? If so, who would win? On one corner we have berserker/were-bear Beorn. In the other we have half human half giant Hagrid. Or would Hagrid think he can tame Beorn, and try to have him as a pet?
If you've read/seen Harry Potter, you know that Hagrid has a penchant for ferocious creatures.

Given Hagrid's respect for Remus Lupin, [In reply to] Can't Post

a werewolf, Hagrid would probably be inclined to be friendly with Beorn. And as long as Hagrid treated Beorn's cute-and-fuzzy creatures with the same respect he shows the fanged-and-scaly, the two animal-lovers would happily spend time swapping tips on caring for their charges. Though Hagrid's desire for dragons might cause Beorn to raise an eyebrow or two.

I'm sure they'd like visiting [In reply to] Can't Post

each other's houses. At least all the furniture would be the right size for once :-).

I'm sure they would get along just fine. [In reply to] Can't Post

They both like animals, Hagrid's more of a friendly sort, and Beorn seems to be fairly kindly underneath. They'd swap honey cakes and rock cakes (which would be discreetly tossed to the Mirkwood spiders and wargs, thereby eliminating those dangerous populations from Middle-earth) and do other animal-related things.

If they did have a fight, my money's on Beorn. I mean, he turns into a giant bear. Sorry, Hagrid, you may be half-giant and resistant against magic but there's not too much you can do to be resistant against giant bear.

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."
