Guess what an idiot bear did this time...

Folks, this one deserves some special attention. There's a LOT to unpack:

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/ ... cket-knife

A Canadian man survived an encounter with a grizzly bear, who bit him in the stomach and thighs, by stabbing it with a pocket knife.

Colin Dowler was mountain biking on a remote logging road on Mount Doogie Dowler – named after his grandfather – in British Columbia when he rounded a corner and saw the bear.


Right off the bat here with riding on a mountian named after his grandfather...WHO WAS NAMED DOOGIE DOWLER.

The 45-year-old stopped his bike and was assessing his options when the bear began walking towards him. As it got closer Dowler said he attempted to deploy his bike and a hiking pole as a makeshift shield and weapon.

After the bear started taking heavy swipes at him, he threw his bike at it, but undeterred the bear bit him in the stomach, then picked him up and dropped him into a ditch, roughly 50ft (15 metres) away, before taking deep bites into his thighs.

But WAIT! Captain Canada first tried to Dr. Doolittle this bad bear boy:

In an interview with the BBC, Dowler recalled trying to negotiate with the bear before the attack. “I know this is your territory, I’m just passing through - we don’t have to do this,” he said he told the bear.


He added: “There was a point – I was scared the whole time – but I thought, ‘man, it would be cool to be catching this on video’.”

After trying to gouge out the bear’s eyes and briefly playing dead, he managed to reach for his pocket knife and stab the bear in the neck with its two-inch blade.

There was a rush of blood and the bear let go and retreated, Dowler said. Losing blood and needing to find help, he put pressure on his wounded leg using a shirt sleeve and cycled four and a half miles to a logging camp, where he collapsed.

I am really glad there are no grizzlies in the Colorado Rockies.

I work outside at night, and I’ve encountered black bears and mountain lions. Luckily they’re always scared and run. Couldn’t do what I do if we had grizzlies.

Well, that's a low blow to this polite genuine badass.
