Wild bears freely roam around the wooded areas of Western and Central Canada.  Many people walking along the woods have been unpleasantly surprised by bear attacks.  These can be grisly bears or black bears.  Grisly bears are dark brown in color.  That's the only difference.  Most bear attacks can be very serious.  Many folks have died after being attacked by bears.  People of some households situated in the suburbs also periodically see bears loitering in their backyards or rummaging through the garbage bins.  In one very unusual case, a bear broke through a basement window and went inside the basement.  Fortunately the person living there was not in at the time. 

This recent story is a brave one but also has an unfortunate side to it.  A man in the province of British Columbia (Western Canada) was attacked by an angry mother bear when he was out for his morning walk with his two dogs.  He literally had a hand-to-hand fight with the female beast.  The man's only weapon was a broken stick he found lying on the ground.  He won the fight before almost losing it.  That's the good news.  The bad news is that the mother bear died, leaving behind two small cubs.  But it was a life and death situation, so the man had no other choice.  Despite winning the fight, the man was badly injured .. had to be taken to hospital and was given many stitches all over his body including his scalp. 

The story is as follows:


B.C. man comes out swinging in bear attack



VANCOUVER (CBC) - A Cariboo, B.C., man who was attacked by a bear says he used a stick to put up the fight of his life after he realized he was likely in a fight to the death.

Jim West, 45, was out walking last Saturday morning with his two dogs near 70 Mile House, about halfway between Kamloops and Williams Lake, when he came face to face with an angry mother bear.

"I turned [when] I heard a grunt. All I saw was eyes full of hatred.... I had no option [but] to hit the ground. So I stuck my foot up and tried to kick her in the face," he said.

The bear then attacked him and West soon found himself on the losing side of an ill-matched fight.

"I rolled onto my stomach and clasped my hands at the back of my neck. She tore into my skull at the back of my head, moved over and bit me on the left side of my body, on my ribs and left arm," said West.

Knowing he would likely soon be dead unless he fought back, the injured West picked up a stick and started swinging.

"I swung the stick and broke it over her head. She kind of stood there and shook it off, like she was stunned," he said.

"I realized if I didn't continue the attack she would knock me to the ground again and I would not get up.

"I swung my piece of wood like a sledgehammer driving spikes and I kept swinging till she was lying flat on the ground and there was blood coming out of her nose, said West.

The five-foot nine-inch tall man eventually crushed the bear's skull with the stick.

West then managed to get himself to a hospital where the gashes in his body took 60 stitches to sew up.

The incident surprised even the conservation officers, who say West is lucky to be alive.

That was spooky!  I don't think bears eat people like tigers and lions.  So why do they attack?
