VANCOUVER – He survived the attack of a ferocious grizzly bear in Bella Coola, B.C, near his home.
Jordan Carbery, a park ranger stated that there were some bears in the driveway as he pulled up there Monday night for arriving home. He had them moved, scared by the vehicle.
Waking up in the morning at 5, he heard something outside. Triggered with the sounds and aiming to grab the moments for his social media, he took his phone and went out of home.
The bears were on to a cherry tree, but they were cubs. Taking his eye from there, he suddenly realized the mother grizzly charging towards him…
“She had her eyes locked on me and she was coming for me,” Jordan recalled the incident.
“I instantly turned and tried to get back to the house. I was only 40 feet out of the house. All of a sudden I just got tackled from behind and sent flying,” he mentioned.
Horrified and afraid, the mother bear picked him with the head in jaws. The scalp got ripped, falling to ground. The mother, this time went for his thigh and butt.
The bear continued putting him to ground with force. Carbery recalled the training as a park ranger to bring the feet as a defense, also to keep the attacker away.
So, he kicked and kicked real hard, managing to get away from her.
“She moved like a prize fighter boxer. She ducked her head to the side and I missed,”
“I tried to hit her again and she moved the other way, a quick sudden move — that was the thing that gave me a little bit of space.”
He ran to his house at that instant. His got injured badly, with a ripped scalp, deep wounds in butt and leg, chest cut, big slash on the abdomen. He was bleeding as he pushed hard to get his car keys.
He rushed to the hospital. Reaching there, he thudded quite a number of times only to see a nurse
“I’m so lucky to be alive. My injuries are so minimal compared to what they could have been,” he stated.
“She could have easily taken out my eye. She could have easily ripped my jugular out. She could have ripped my guts wide open and poked holes in my intestines. But none of that happened.”
The COS is presently not in a mood to get rid of bears especially because what the mother did was defensive action, mentioned Inspector Len Butler.
The owner of cherry trees has been given order of dangerous wildlife protection to cut the trees or electrify them.
“We don’t want people being mauled by grizzly bears, managing these attractants will certainly help.”
