Alaska Hunter Kills Bear That Was Attacking Friend

posted on October 7, 2016

Anthony Lindoff of Juneau, Alaska, and Josh Dybdahl of Hoonah were enjoying an afternoon of deer hunting Saturday on Alaska’s Chichagof Island when the tables turned and they became the hunted. With a massive ‘whoof’ sound, a brown bear burst through the woods and charged the men. 

The bear had Dybdahl pinned to the ground and was attacking him when Lindoff sprang into action. He grabbed his rifle from his pack and fatally shot the bear. Dybdahl was taken to the hospital, where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. 

Alaska state troopers called to the scene said the attack was likely caused by the bear being startled. The troopers also notified the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
