Man nearly eaten by polar bear; saves himself with gun [PIC]

...

WARNING: These pictures are not for the weak-stomached.

A man was camping in the Yukon when a polar bear tore through his tent while he was sleeping, attacked him, tearing off most his scalp, scratching across his back, and biting a large chunk out of his foot.

He managed to get free from the bear and retrieve his firearm, shooting and killing the bear.

Some would say he’s lucky to be alive. Luck didn’t have anything to do with it; he was prepared to protect himself.

  3. When you go into bear territory you are taking a risk and are on the menu. The bear did what
    came naturally he was seeking food and this poor guy was easy prey. Imagine the bear thinking how lucking he was finding something just lying out there in the open.
    But most prey don't carry guns! I hope this gentlemans wounds heal along with the mental scares he'll have from the attack.

  4. Yeah, that foot will heal right up. Give it a few weeks and some rest. He’s probably gonna lose the hair, though. I’m sure he could get a hair piece or something. My uncle Ted has one and it don’t look so bad – he sill get laid with it (or so he says…!).
