A 50-year-old man is in hospital after fighting off a grizzly bear with his bare hands near Bella Coola, B.C. Friday. Jerry Lacerte was walking to a friend’s house near Thorsen Creek at around 8 a.m. when he was attacked by a grizzly bear that was with her two cubs. “I saw three bears and the mother bear just started attacking me,” Lacerte said. Lacerte started fighting for his life as the bear lashed out at him, cutting his face and arms. “I punched her right square in the nose,” he said. “I gave it all I had to get away.” Thankfully, Lacerte’s final blow was enough to scare off the grizzly and stop the attack. .................... http://globalnews.ca/news/824369/man-punches-grizzly-bear-to-escape-vicious-attack-in-b-c/ ..that Indian is one very tough hombre.
