Youtube
Seems like every day I get a Bear tweet or a bear alert from our local news services vindicating “Bear” sightings in and around the smaller communities surrounding Grand Rapids. So thought I'd join in on all the fear mongering and bring to you my Top 5 Horrible Deaths brought upon by the Yogi's of our National Forests. If the news reports make you nervous then this will scare the hell out of you!

Timothy Treadwell, 46, male; Amie Huguenard, 37, female - October 2003 - Alaska

Killed By Black Bear

 
 

Found by their pilot, dead and partially consumed at Katmai National Park, Alaska on October 6, 2003. Treadwell was world-famous for his books and documentaries on living with wild bears in Alaska. He had once told bear scientists that he welcomed ‘death by bear’, in fact considering it an honor to be killed and eaten by one. Seems he got his wish fulfilled. State Troopers investigating the incident recovered an audiotape of the attack.

Lana Hollingsworth 61 - July 25/ 2011


 
 

The bear was scavenging for trash at a dumpster near her vacation home in Pinetop Arizona when it attacked her as she took her dog out for a walk. It launched itself at her three times, ripping off part of her scalp with its claws and teeth and tearing at her arms as she tried desperately to defend herself. Eleven operations were attempted to reattach her scalp and repair her badly-injured arms but to no avail - Lana passed away four weeks later.

While drinking with his friends in Ely, Minnesota, the unfortunate Mr. Ruberto wandered into the woods to urinate. He never returned. Upon waking up the following morning, his friends found his mauled remains 60 yards away from the cabin. The bear, later found having an after dinner smoke & picking it's teeth was killed by the Minnesota DNR. .
