Grizzly attack leaves forestry worker with significant injuries
Bear season in Canada and the United States has begun, with sightings in Alberta, British Columbia and Alaska. Sadly this past week a forestry working in B.C. 's central coast was mauled. A reminder that bears are waking up and companies working in bear country need to be trained and provided with the proper safety equipment. Luckily for this worker, another man on site was carrying bear spray and was able to stop the bear attack, saving the victim's life.
The man was part of a crew working in steep forested terrain near Drainey Inlet, about 400 kilometres northwest of Vancouver, the officer says.
