This video shows Todd Orr a former Trails Engineer at Gallatin National Forest records himself talking about the aftermath of a bear attack that he encounter while on a hike. He stated, “he had pepper spray with him and did use it to defend himself but wasn’t much help”, but it was better than nothing. Thank goodness that he survived to share the story.
Yeah, life sucks in Bear Country. Just had a Grisley with two cubs come at me from about 80 yards and, uh, I sprayed the shit out of her with bear spray, and then I went on my face and protected the back of my neck. She got my head good, I don’t know what’s under my hat; my ear, my arm -ugh, pieces of stuff hangin’ out, I dunno what’s going on in there- and then my shoulder’s ripped up, I think my arm’s broke, but my legs are good, internal organs are good, eyes are good, I just walked out three miles, now I gotta go to the hospital. So. Be safe out there. Bear spray doesn’t always work, but it’s better than nothin’!
