Wilf Lloyd, a 56-year-old taxidermist from Cranbrook, British Columbia, survived both a grizzly bear mauling and gunshot Sunday morning. Lloyd was hunting elk just south of Fernie, 40 miles from the Montana border, when he was attacked by the grizzly. Lloyd was thenaccidentally shot by his son-in-law, Skeet Podrasky.
Lloyd suffered leg injuries during the mauling and additional injuries at the hands of Podrasky, who accidentally shot Lloyd before fatally shooting the bear.
“This is a somewhat remote area, and there’s no history with this bear,” conservation officer Sergeant Cam Schley of Cranbrook told Global News.
