That's the exact set up the guy who was attacked had. He chose the bear spray first and the bear was not phased. His side arm was knocked off his hip during the first attack.
Being a local in Montana, he knows that had he shot the bear without first employing the pepper spray he'd be brought up on charges. Yes, I know that's dumb but that's how it is.
The feds will do a necropsy on the bear and if there's no sign of pepper spray in it's airways or lungs, they know it was shot first then sprayed. Which is something many say they would do.
Me, I would shoot the bear and get my butt off of that mountain. Then make no Facebook posts, and only tell the truth to trusted friends and family.
The level of protection afforded Grizzly bears is insane, to the point that the bear's life has more value than the human's, when these incidents are investigated.
People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.
