Serious attacks by black bears in North America are reportedly very rare. For some reason that statistic doesn’t seem to apply to our next guest on the podcast, Dr Rob Foster, who has been attacked numerous times while working out in the Northwoods of Canada. In this podcast he describes how he spent 45 minutes fighting off a Black bear that was very intent on eating him with only a can of bear spray and a pocket-knife for protection. And if that wasn’t enough, he had another bear attack him on the anniversary of his first attack! I suspect after listening to Rob’s stories, most mammalwatchers will start carrying a very large can of bear spray when walking in the woods looking for mammals.
