A Wyoming man is recovering after an attack Thursday morning by what is believed to have been a grizzly sow south of Cody, Wyoming. Wyoming Game and Fish Department regional wildlife supervisor Alan Osterland says the man was working in an irrigation ditch along Southfork Road when the female bear attacked him. 63 year-old Nic Patrick is recovering from injuries sustained during the attack, including severe facial lacerations although Patrick’s injuries did not immediately appear to be life-threatening. Osterland says Patrick’s dog first contacted the bear, provoking a protective response from the female grizzly, which had two cubs with her at the time.  Osterland says under those circumstances, Game and Fish has not yet determined how to deal with the bear.  Osterland says the man apparently managed to make it home after the attack.

  • Diapers weren’t a magic bullet for staying cool - July 25, 2014
    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
