I just got home from work and this was an e-mail I got from a friend who lives in Manitoba. He didn't send any type of story with these pics. All I know was that it was a Northern Native who is one lucky dude to be alive.. WOW!!
Let the "oh shit" faces begin!!!

I imagine that's going to leave a mark! Curious about the circumstances, but glad to see the gentleman is still among the living, in any event.

I've read that the Polar bear is the only animal on the planet that will actually stalk a human for food. I suspect that was the case here.....

Is there any report of how the bear was killed?

Wasn't there recently an article on this site pertaining to the young man who was killed in Northern Alberta by wolves was supposed stalked for several hundred yards? I've also heard about lion attacks like that.

Anyway, those are some great photos, that guy sure got torn up, but apparently got the best of the bear.

One of my worst nightmares is having a bear come through a tent on me in the dark.

I'm glad the victim is still with us.

From the looks of the victim and the bear it must have been ONE HELL of a fight!

I wonder what it was that left the wound on the bears butt. Exit wound I'm guessing?

There are tons of animals that stalk humans for food or predate upon humans. The black bear has been known to stalk many humans, kill them, then eat them. The same can be said for every major cat species-ie: mountain lions, leopards, jaguars, lions, tigers, even grizzly and brownies predate human beings.

There are several well-documented cases of healthy African Lions developing a preference for human prey. The most famous of these being the Lions of Savo (spelling?), the subject of the film The Ghost and the Darkness.

Mountain lions are known to do it, too. Grizzly Bears also (Timothy Treadwell).

Gentlemen,
That is why, when in a tent in bear country, I always sleep with my revolver in its holster, firmly belted around my waist.
If a bear does get on me I might have a chance if I can get to my revolver. If the bear gets on somebody else in the tent I know I can get to my revolver.
I always wear it 100% of the time.

I can just see my Mother walking up with a bottle of alcohol to "dab" the boo-boo. Big Grin Every wound I have ever received got a generous portion of torture from rubbing alcohol.

Much luckier than the pics I saw of a brownie's dinner. Wasn't much left of that guy, just his dick skeletan and shoes.

This guys not feeling very lucky I'll tell you that much. He's hurting like hell even a month later when this post is written.

Tim,
I have never been there. The clan does get around don't they. James outfitted John Muur when he climbed The big R.
We are a big family that spans coast to coast and all from a thief that was to hang in London in 1725 OR serve 14 years in the Virginia colony. He made the right choice.

Not exactly true. In North America, there are cases on record where black bears have stalked and killed people to eat them. Cougars (usually children) as well. Around the world there are several other animals that will make a meal of man intentionally. Crocodiles come to mind. Lions and tigers are also included. An interesting book on the subject if you can find a copy is Man Is The Prey. Amazon search result
