Predatory Black Bear Attack: Men save fellow cyclist from a grizzly fate

According to officials at Banff National Park, an unnamed cyclist is lucky to be alive after two fellow bikers saved him—in all likelihood—from becoming the meal of an emaciated black bear.  The 41-year-old man was cycling alone when the bruin attacked and dragged the him off the trail. Soon thereafter Robert Earl and Robin Borstmayer, colleagues of the victim, came down the same trail, recognized the man’s bike, heard him calling for help, and interrupted the attack. Earl stayed to help stave off the bear while Borstmayer rode to get a park warden, who eventually shot and killed the bear.
