Young fisherman survives bear attack in Naknek boatyard

It was dark when 19-year-old Stig Ure found himself walking through the Upper Lummy boat yard around 2:00 am on June third. He was close to his father’s salmon boat, the Coachman II, where he was staying, when his night took a turn for the worse. He explained, “I crested the bow of the [F/V] Gabey V and all of a sudden I was five to seven feet from this brown bear.” The bear was eating out of a dumpster when Ure surprised it. Almost immediately, Ure reacted. “I just kinda turned into an animal like at that point. Instinct just kicked in, and I bolted.” >click to read<12:30
