“A Michigan woman who suffered injuries to her arms, legs and back when she was attacked by a bear belonging to a friend said she is grateful to be alive.

Linda Beck of Ontonagon County in the Upper Peninsula said she has been feeding her friend’s bears for years, but she never had any problems with the animals until one of them ran at her.


It’s a good rule of thumb never to feed a wild beast who has the capability to make mincemeat out of you. There’s always the chance that he might find you more appetizing than the crumbs you are feeding him.

It’s also a good idea never to visit a friend who has bears or any other wild animal in her home.

Unfortunately, the bear was euthanized in the name of public safety. In most states it’s against the law to feed wild bears; the woman who has been feeding the bears should be fined.
