Jerry Brown, 63, was outside his cabin when he spotted a large black bear. The bear first headed away from Brown, but then turned toward him and attacked. As Brown tried to escape, his brother, Randy, retrieved a firearm and shot at the bear, causing it to run off. Brown suffered extensive injuries to his face, including the loss of his left eye. It was reported that Brown was in serious, but stable, condition and recovering from his injuries. (Grand Forks Herald, Shell Lake, WI, 6/20/13)

Paradise has a concealed carry license and pulled out his handgun during the incident, holding Brouillette at bay until the police arrived.
