In September 2004, Jay Stafford and his father, Terry, endured a grizzly bear attack while skinning an elk in Northern BC, following a two-week hunting trip.
Terry suffered severe scratches on his back and shoulder, while Jay was knocked down and mauled but managed to shoot the bear.
After a strenuous five-hour horseback ride to an outfitter camp, they were airlifted to safety.
The bear cubs involved were later euthanized due to behavior learned from their mother.
