Bear attack survivor Todd Orr has a lot to share.
His bear attack survival is nothing short of miraculous.
Listen to the bear attack details in his own words and try to imagine what you would have done.
YouTuber MeatEater shared a video of a true life story of survival everyone should hear. It is how tougher than nails outdoorsman Todd Orr survived a vicious bear attack.
So you are in bear country without a defense plan? Bad idea. Mr. Orr was well prepared with both a handgun and bear spray in easy access but was mauled terribly twice by the same grizzly sow. It happens in a blink of an eye and then the alpha predator is tearing you to shreds.
All bears are not created equal. Each type of bear and bear attack has it’s own special defense. The above grizzly bear attack was caused by surprising a sow with two cubs. This is the most dangerous encounter with a grizzly bear. Defending yourself at all cost is the best defense until you are unable to after the bear is on top of you. Then you are to play dead until the bear leaves. Easier said than done in reality…
A black bear attack is usually in defense if it feels cornered or as a predatory attack where it feels you are the meal. Fight back with all you have and never play dead or you most certainly might become that way and consumed.
While bear attacks are quite rare they can and do happen. Be prepared and pray it never happens to you.
