How to Survive a Bear Attack

• http://survival.outdoorlife.com, by Tim MacWelch
 Most experts agree that a person should play dead in a fetal position with grizzlies, and fight back when it comes to black bear attacks. But the brave young lady in Michigan who was attacked by a black bear just days ago, was spared after she played dead. She was able to run home after the attack. But an Alaskan hunter wasn’t able to get to help so quickly after a bear attack this past weekend. 

An unnamed man from Alaska had to wait 36 hours for a rescue helicopter to bring him to a hospital. And luckily, he received life sustaining care while he waited, administered by a fellow hunter with a day job is in the medical field. The attack happened late Thursday in northern Alaska, and the man was finally airlifted around 3 a.m. Saturday morning. Both the 12-year-old girl and the adult male hunter are expected to make a full recovery.
