A grizzly discovery?

Montana officials trap suspected killer grizzly

CANADAThe woman, Deb Freele, 58, from Ontario, Canada, described a harrowing few seconds after she was awaken in her tent by a bear biting her arm. She said she survived by playing dead until the animal gave up and lumbered away.

Wildlife experts say deadly bear attacks — either by grizzlies or black bares — are rare.

Awaken??? Bares??? Really? Reuters is turning into a big joke.


Please, please check your spelling… it’s atrocious. I’m an artist and I spell better than your writers. Bares indeed.


This was not our finest hour. We corrected, of course: GBU Editor
