Grizzly-Attack Victim Tells His Story

From a CBC New story on AOL News:
A man from B.C.'s Interior not only survived being mauled by a grizzly - he killed the bear as well.

. . . "I heard a woofing sound, turned, seen a grizz coming at me. I managed to get my rifle up and get one round into the chest.

. . . At that point he . . . took me down," Shorter said. "He proceeded to try to maul me in the back of the scalp and on the neck, and I protected my neck with my hands. They got fairly chewed up. . . ."

[Eventually putting some distance between himself and the bear, H]e shot the animal a second time, this time killing it. . . .

"You know, if you're in that situation, all you can do is fight for all you got. I mean, I don't think I'm any different from anyone else," he said.
