In the Animal Kingdom, Bear Attacks on the Rise

Yahweh is directing the animal kingdom – as they begin to starve – towards humankind as a food source. Those once preyed upon will become the predator. Fear of mankind will be lifted from their instinct and survival will become their driving force. Additionally, the pet dogs being abandoned, they will become more fierce than a pack of wolves. Soon, it will be dangerous out doors even in cities where they pack for survival. Humans will become their targets as a plentiful food source as cattle and horses and other livestock perish from the harsh conditions Yahweh is bringing upon this planet.

 A bear attacked a couple inside their central Pennsylvania home, sending both people to a hospital.

According to Pennsylvania Game Commission spokesman Jerry Feaser  the couple’s dog was chased inside the house by the bear, who followed shortly after.

The attack happened Monday morning in Oliver Township.

Feaser says the man inside the home was scratched and bitten and a woman was attacked as she tried to chase the animal away.

Emergency dispatchers say both were taken to Harrisburg Hospital with unspecified injuries.

State police in Newport directed inquiries to the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

Oliver Township is near Newport in largely rural Perry County, about 20 miles northwest of Harrisburg.

Last June another woman was also attacked by a bear in the same area.

After spotting the animal she ran away and played dead. The bear then attacked her leg. – MailOnline

Yellowstone grizzly bear involved in attacks euthanized

Authorities in Yellowstone National Park have linked a grizzly sow they captured last week to two fatal maulings this summer and killed the bear Sunday, the park announced Monday.

The grizzly’s two cubs, which were captured Sept. 29, were placed in a wildlife facility in West Yellowstone, Mont.

Park officials said that adult bears do not adapt well to captivity, whereas cubs may.

Genetic testing indicated that the female bear was responsible for the death of hiker Brian Matayoshi of Torrance on July 6 and that the 250-pound sow was present at the scene of a fatal attack on hiker John Wallace in August.

In the July incident park officials determined that the sow had been defending her cubs when she attacked Matayoshi and his wife on the Wapiti lake Trail. In that case, even if authorities had immediately found the bear they would not have killed it, since it had no history of interaction with humans.

And, even though the grizzly was one of nine bears in the area where Wallace’s body was found, Yellowstone Superintendent Dan Wenk said the sow was euthanized to “eliminate the risk of future interaction with Yellowstone visitors and staff.” – LATimes

E. Idaho Elk Hunter Hospitalized After Bear Attack

An Idaho elk hunter who apparently stumbled across a bear’s resting spot Saturday was hospitalized after the animal bit him and broke his right arm, officials said.

Richard Paini, 40, suffered puncture wounds and an injured left hand along with the broken forearm in the attack at about 9 a.m. He was taken to the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls.

A hospital spokesman said Paini, of Island Park, was listed in serious condition Saturday afternoon. She declined to release details about the extent of his injuries.

The bear involved in the attack fled after Paini’s archery hunting partner, John Stiehl of Island Park, used bear spray to scare off the bear. Stiehl told authorities he believed it was a grizzly bear.

The Wildlife Human Attack Response Team was activated to investigate the attack, said Gregg Losinski, a spokesman for Idaho Fish and Game and a member of the team.

“It was described to be a large bear,” Losinski said.

He said the attack, first reported by KIFI-TV in Idaho Falls, occurred about a half mile east of Last Chance in the Caribou-Targhee National Forest. He said hair samples collected at the site have been sent to a lab that will identify whether it was a black bear or grizzly bear. – ABCNews

Bear killed after attacking goat, dog; animal stalked livestock in Fall River Mills area

A sheriff’s deputy shot and killed an aggressive black bear early Wednesday morning in the Fall River Mills area after the bear entered a man’s property and stalked his livestock, attacked a goat and mauled his dog.

Scott Myers called the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office at 12:15 a.m., saying for the past few days the bear had been dangerously close to his Comanche Court property.

“The bear was near the livestock tent watching the animals,” a sheriff’s office dispatch report says.

Myers told dispatchers the bear also had attacked a goat and had injured the his dog earlier in the week.

He said the bear had been run up a tree and he was waiting for deputies or a game warden to arrive.

A Shasta County sheriff’s deputy eventually arrived and shot the bear, Myers said.

Black bears generally shy away from humans, although occasionally bears become aggressive toward people and livestock, according to the Department of Fish and Game. –
