This weekend in Montana, brothers Chase and Shane Dellwo were bow-hunting for elk when Chase was attacked by a grizzly bear. Thanks to some quick thinking and a knowledge of bear anatomy, Chase lived to tell the tale.
The brothers spotted an elk herd and decided to have Chase walk up a narrow creek bed, hoping he would drive the animals up to a ridge where Shane would wait…
It wasn’t until he was just three feet away that he realized he was approaching a bear that had been sleeping…
The bear knocked Dellwo off his feet and bit down on the top and back of his head…
“I remembered an article that my grandmother gave me a long time ago that said large animals have bad gag reflexes,” Dellwo said. “So I shoved my right arm down his throat.”
It worked. The bear left.
Chase Dellwo is smarter than the average bear. So are most humans, except for animal-rights activists.
I’m glad Dellwo survived, and I’m even more glad he didn’t kill that cuddly, harmless creature of nature. He’d have been doxxed and vandalized by “animal lovers” and tormented by the media, and Jimmy Kimmel would’ve cried like a little girl. All over the death of a creature that would kill any of them without hesitation.
Animals are not your friends. They don’t want to take selfies with you. They don’t want to be in your viral videos. They don’t want to autograph your copy of The Lion King. They want to kill you and eat you.
You need to kill them first. If you can’t do that, you can at least make them gag until they go away.
