Within 4 years, this man survives two separate bear attacks.
The first bear to attack was never found.
Was this bear the same bear 4 years later?
A 300 pound bear was shot and killed by authorities after a man was attacked on a well used hiking trail. This occurred at Joint Base Lewis-Mcchord in Washington state while a man named Bob was running with his dog. He is very lucky to be alive.
The same trail four years ago in 2011 Bob was attacked by a bear before. That first bear escaped authorities. This bear did not.
The real question is why did this happen? Was it even the same bear? No one knows for sure but this runner is staying away from running in those woods again.
