A 56-year-old Canadian man is lucky to be alive today after he was viciously attacked by a bear, then shot by his friend who was trying to neutralize the animal. It was bad enough that the man was attacked by a bear, but then his partner tried to shoot the bear…and put a couple of rounds in him instead! As reported by Vancouver Sun on Oct. 14, the man, identified as Wilf Lloyd, was flown to a hospital after being attacked by the large grizzly bearand he remains hospitalized as of the time of this report.
The man was hunting elk with his son-in-law south of Fernie when he was attacked by a grizzly bear around 9 am Sunday. His son-in-law opened fired on the bear but missed and shot Lloyd a reported two times before he eventually hit and killed the animal.
Conservation officers and emergency crews reported that the man was badly injured during the attack, said David Karn, the Ministry of Environment spokesman. The man was saved because, “during the attack, the victim’s hunting partner shot at the bear, killing the bear,” Karn wrote in an email statement to NBC News.
