Adventist Teen Survives Bear Attack at Glacier View Ranch"Teen staffer Dylan, who teaches wilderness survival at the Seventh-day Adventist Rocky Mountain camp in Ward, Colorado, fought off a bear after waking up to find the animal biting his head and
trying to drag him away. The teen told KMGH-TV that the bear dragged him ten to 12 feet before he was able to free himself. The 19-year-old woke up at around 4 a.m. to a "crunching sound" with his head inside the mouth of the bear which was trying to pull him out of his sleeping bag as he slept outside at Glacier View Ranch 48 miles (77 kilometers) northwest of Denver, Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokeswoman Jennifer Churchill said. The teen punched and hit it and other staffers who were sleeping nearby yelled and swatted at the bear which eventually left, she said. Dylan and the other staffers were near teepees where 12- and 13-year-old campers were sleeping. None of them were hurt. From The Gazette, “Teen bit in head by bear wakes up to crunching sound.”
Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies' sake.
