Fort Nelson - A man from British Columbia, Canada, is at his home recovering after he shot a grizzly bear that was attacking him. He suffered a broken jaw and cuts to his body and face.
Conrad Boyes, a hunter from Vanderhoof, B.C., said that he was near Fort Nelson earlier this month when he had a confrontation with a grizzly bear.
According to CBC, he said that when he saw the bear it stood up on its hind legs and roared. He said that before he knew it he was on the ground trying to fight off the grizzly.
According to Energeticcity, Boyes managed to grab hold of his gun. He fired two shots at the bear, killing it.
Boyes did end up breaking his jaw during the attack, and he also suffered lacerations to his body as well as to his face. He managed to walk back to camp and he was airlifted to Fort Nelson, where he was eventually brought to a hospital located in Edmonton.
According to Updated, Boyes said that his recovery was very quick, and that he plans on going back to hunting as soon as he is able to.
Boyes said that he will return to the same area where he and the grizzly battled each other, and that he will hunt in the same area.
