Amazing how animal moms have a natural instinct to protect their young. That led to my neighbor’s second near mauling. He took a friend hunting. On a trail the guy casually pointed to 2 cubs in the bushes. My neighbor’s response - RUN!

They split up hoping the bear would just stop. It picked my neighbor and caught up with him. After being roughed up a bit he decided that he was not going through another bear mauling and jumped off a nearby cliff. Cuts, bruises and a broken ankle. He turned over to look back at the cliff to see what he described as a 400 lb flying squirrel diving towards him. The bear was also hurt by the fall. The bear and the kid limped off in opposite directions.
