Bear attacks are a frequent occurrence in Alaska, and they’re never a laughing matter. The newswoman, Julie Tremmel, who made this video had good intentions and her advice was sound, albeit a little goofy. But hey, at least she got people talking about bear encounters.
I recommend a new Alaskan book, Beyond the Bear by Dan Bigley and Debra McKinney. It chronicles a gruesome bear mauling on the Kenai peninsula and a young man’s fight to survive and return to some sort of normalcy after losing his eyes and most of his face.
