Creepy,

Happened last night.the guy was fishing and looking for the bear;
Evidently he never saw the bear and the bear got him from behind.

Last year we called in a black bear, that winded my daughter and bolted. A neighbor kid was literally knocked over by a black bear while his dad was calling.

Then a few years back my daughter and I came off a stand and a huge grizzlie was near the ATV.

Anyway grizzlies keep me well, bear aware.

Sad ending The fellow passed.


MISSOULA, Mont. — A Montana man seriously injured from a grizzly bear attack Thursday afternoon has passed away Saturday morning.
Carl Mock, 40, suffered a massive stroke and was unable to make a recovery in an Idaho Falls hospital, according to a GoFundMe page set up for Mock.
The grizzly bear attack occurred near Bakers Hole Campground, about 3 miles north of West Yellowstone.
A group of seven investigators, including FWP game wardens and bear specialists, as well as Forest Service personnel, revisited the site Friday to assess ongoing public safety risks and continue the investigation.
They yelled and made continuous noise as they walked toward the site to haze away any bears in the area. Before they reached the site, a bear began charging the group. Despite multiple attempts by all seven people to haze away the bear, it continued its charge. Due to this immediate safety risk, the bear was shot and died about 20 yards from the group. The bear was an older-age male grizzly.
Investigators later found a moose carcass cached within 50 yards of Thursday’s attack. This indicates the bear was defending a food source during the attack.
Recreationists, residents and people who work outdoors can be prepared for a surprise bear encounter. Activities that are deliberately quiet or fast moving, such as hunting, mountain biking or trail running, put people at greater risk for surprising a bear. When you’re outside, keep these precautions in mind:
Be aware of your surroundings and look for bear sign.
Read signs at trailheads and stay on trails. Be especially careful around creeks and in areas with dense brush.
Carry bear spray. Know how to use it and be prepared to deploy it immediately.
Travel in groups whenever possible and make casual noise, which can help alert bears to your presence.
Stay away from animal carcasses, which often attract bears.
Follow food storage orders from the applicable land management agency.
If you encounter a bear, never approach it. Back away slowly and leave the area.

One of the big disappointments were some of the comments left by people regarding the killing of the grizzlie, some people are just so uninformed

There are unfortunately a lot of people out there that feel animals lives have more value than human lives. Most of those people will not change their minds until they are out in a position of having their life or one of their loved ones put at risk. Oddly enough these same people rarely leave their 4 block radius in downtown Seattle.

Its not odd at all. If you lived around the kind of people that inhabit downtown seattle, you wouldnt see much value in human life either.

That's fair. I'm down there too frequently for work and it's a sad place. During the height of lockdown last summer, I likened it to a scene from the Walking Dead. The only people out and about were the meth and heroin zombies, everything was boarded up, trash eddying around in the wind.
