There was a guy from here in Dillingham that was mauled pretty bad a week and a half ago, just a few miles below where I was hunting. Story is the bear picked him up and shook him by his thigh and for a while it looked like he was going to lose the leg (I think they were able to save it). His story was on my mind as I was gutting my moose and the sun was quickly dropping below the horizon.
Hopefully the boy in this story makes a full and fast recovery. It's a sad fact of life that living up here, this can and does happen.
I hope all turns out well! I have a friend in y’alls neck of the woods right now. He was hunting moose but after a few days slogging around in the musk-keg he has decided moose hunting wasn’t for him so is now a salmon fishing fanatic.
I know a former teacher of the boy. For non-Alaskans that area is not what I would consider super bear dense. You can always be surprised. Prayers for little man. Bear attacks are horrific on adults never mind smaller guys.
