Pierre Mezzetta of Fredericton, a forestry worker from New Brunswick, is recovering from an attack by a “300-pound aggressive black bear” while he was working in the woods near Oromocto Lake.
After both parties acknowledged each other, the bear charged after Mezzetta and Mezzetta ran.
Before climbing a tree to escape, Mezzetta was chased hundreds of meters.Even though he was close to three meters up the tree, the bear was still able to clamp its jaws around Mezzetta’s Achilles.
In a situation like this, instead of running from the bear, FRONTIERSMAN Bear Spray is best route to take. FRONTIERSMAN Bear Spray is the only 7.9 oz. and 9.2 oz. canister with a 30 to 35-foot range- up to 20 feet further than other brands- for protection at a safe distance!
