The possibility that a bear may have killed a man in northern B.C. sets Lloyd to thinking it could have been him.
The 56-year-old taxidermist is still recovering from a grizzly attack near Fernie, B.C. last October. If he’d been alone, if his son-in-law hadn’t kept his wits about him, if he hadn’t had two loaded guns at the ready, Lloyd has no doubt the outcome would have been different.
“Without my son-in-law, I would have been that guy… that bear would have killed me,” he tells Yahoo Canada News.
The B.C. Conservation Officer Service, RCMP and the coroner are investigating the death on the weekend near Mackenzie, in northern B.C., as a possible black bear attack.
A black bear and a wolf found near the body were shot and killed. The cause of death has not been determined and the man’s identity was not released, but reports say officials suspect a bear.
In his case, Lloyd and his son-in-law, Skeet Podrasky, were heading back to their truck after – unsuccessfully – hunting elk. LloydRead More »from Survivor of bear attack recalls encounter as B.C. authorities investigate possible deadly attack
