Bear Attack: "They were met by a pool of blood and ribbons of flesh."

Bear Attack: "They were met by a pool of blood and ribbons of flesh."

Betty drove her car into the garage, opened the car door, got out and started walking toward the house. Suddenly she heard a roar and she was knocked face down onto the ground. The bear started ripping at her scalp, she thought he is going to rip my head off. Then he was ripping the flesh down her back and hips into shreds. "Oh, God, I am going to die." As quickly as the attack had started, it was over. The bear raised up and ran off into the woods. Marie, her mother had witnessed the ordeal from her window, and all she could do was scream. She called the 911 to hurry that her daughter had been attacked by a black bear. She ran over to where had been, she saw the blood trail, somehow Betty had dragged herself into her house. When the EMT's arrived, Marie told them where she was. They entered the kitchen----all they say was a pool of blood and ribbons of flesh, hanging on by a thread. Is she alive, one of them whispered? They gently turned her over, look her face has not been touched, it was only bruised and swollen. They had called the emergency department at St. Mary's Hospital. When they arrived at the hospital, the staff wasn't expecting what they saw, they had never seen such wounds. Would she live through the night? Would Dr. Sommers, Rink and the Waltm...

Bear Attacks of the Century: True Stories Of Courage And Survival

Bear Attacks of the Century: True Stories Of Courage And Survival

Do bear attacks touch people in the far-back recesses of their psyches? Reach latent ancestral memories of cave days when humans were potential prey? Indeed, there are those who say their nightmares involved bears before they ever saw one, either in the flesh or in the movies. Unfortunately, these nightmares all too often come true. People perform almost superhuman feats in their fight to survive bear attacks. Jim Marriott, for instance, was attacked andmauled by a grizzly while carving out a moose head. When playing dead didn’t work, he slammed his skinning knife into the attacker’s neck. The surprised bear backed off only to charge again, cut his tongue trying to bite at the knife, and got the knife sunk into thesame place. By the third charge, Marriott was on his feet despite chewed buttocks and damaged legs. This time the bear left with the knife still sticking in his neck. “In bear attacks, the human survival instinct is extraordinary,” says a doctor who sees the terrible punishment victims of bear attacks live through. “And equally amazing are the heroics and seemingly superhuman efforts of those around the victims.”BEAR ATTACKS OF THE CENTURY gathers together these stories of courage,chronicling the most horrific encounters between bears and people. With expert...

In the bushes about 150 feet away, they found Precup’s bare skeleton, one intact hand, and both feet, still booted. In his camera were the exposed frames of the bear that killed him.Chris Dunkley and three friends were hiking in Banff National Park. Suddenly a grizzly bear mother came galloping toward them. The first of three charges came so close that it broke a fishing rod in Dunkley’s hand, yet none of the party was injured.Keith Ecklund and Larry Reimer were fishing in central Saskatchewan one spring day when they were attacked by a black bear. Ecklund kicked the bear in the head to hold it off. Reimer came to help, was attacked, and while fighting with the bear, killed it with his filleting knife. An autopsy of the bear revealed parts of a third man, Melvin Rudd, in the bear’s gut. The rest of Rudd’s partly consumed body was found nearby.What can we learn from these and hundreds of other attacks and non-injurious encounters with black and grizzly bears? Of all the animals in North America’s wilderness, none command such fear, awe, and interest as the bear. Creatures that fear little, bears now compete for survival with the only other animal that can threat...

I Survived the Attack of the Grizzlies, 1967 (I Survived #17)

I Survived the Attack of the Grizzlies, 1967 (I Survived #17)

Since the opening of Glacier National Park in 1910, there were no reported fatal bear attacks until one summer night in 1967, when two grizzlies attacked campers and killed two young women. Inspired by the dramatic and tragic story of that night, and how it eventually influenced the fate of the grizzly bear in the continental United States, Lauren Tarshis has crafted yet another gripping novel in the I Survived series that is sure to shine a light on a terrifying and mostly unknown moment in US history.

The Berenstain Bears and the Great Ant Attack

The Berenstain Bears and the Great Ant Attack

Head for the hills! The ants are coming! Ferdy and Actual Factual's ant-breeding experiment backfires and Bear Country is overrun by a rapidly multiplying colony of nasty hybrid ants who will eat anything in very large mouthfuls! Beartown is in a panic, and Mayor Honeypot authorizes Actual Factual to hire Bugsy X Terminator, the local bug bear, to destroy the ants. "Who would have thought," muses Actual Factual, "that the very existence of Bear Country would be endangered by an ant?" "Or," as Ferdy aptly puts it, "an uncle." Uncle Factual, that is.
