Little Neophyte BS: Bear Encounters - Got Any Good Stories? (110* d) RE: BS: Bear Encounters - Got Any Good Stories? 07 Jul 01

A geologist friend of mine told me a story about another geologist she works with. They do map surveying in northern BC. She told me her geologist co-worker was dropped off on some ridge alone for the day to do some research studies. She had a radio but no gun. Somewhere along the line she startled a sleeping black bear. He seemed to have been scared and dashed off, but what the bear did was swing around the bush and attack her from behind. The woman had no chance. She was mangled pretty bad and then the bear buried her under some leaves for a later meal. Fortunately she got access to her radio, called for help 'I'm being eaten by a bear!!!!!'. She lost both her arms from the mauling. She still continues her work as a geologist surveying maps in the field. Unbelievable woman of courage.
