Robert Miller, a geologist looking for potential possible mining project sites in a remote valley of the Alaska Range mountains, is lucky to have survived two attacks by the same grizzly bear in which he shot multiple times with his .357 Magnum revolver and played dead as the bear gnawed on him. “He should have been packing a more powerful gun,” said Rick Sinnott, an Alaska Department of Fish and Game biologist. “You have to be a very good shot or very lucky to stop a brown bear with a .357 Magnum.” Via AP.
