‘Bearly’ Attacked

Early this afternoon, I found myself in the company of a bear on the prowl.  Even at a very close distance, it’s size was undetectable and I felt to be safe enough and away from this carnivorous creature known throughout Alaska as one of the most feared.

At some point, the bear caught my scent and turned to charge right at me and it was all I could do to even capture an image, let alone a focused one.

The point of attack included the bear standing up on it’s rear legs and lunging at me with all it’s might.  The sharp claws tore at my pants and the it’s jaws held my fingers in it’s mouth!

It’s not everyday you get attacked by a bear in Alaska and live to tell others about it like I have just done.

(I used my charm to persuade the handlers of this new Alaska celebrity to allow me special access to it’s new temporary home in order to get a few close-up pics of it just for you)
