A Montana man was attacked by a grizzly bear and he showed the result of the encounter on Facebook. He got tore up pretty bad but should make a full recovery.
Here is Shanun Rammell describing the incident in his own words.
Wanted to document the Grizzly attack when it happened, this happened by Fairfield, Mt. I’m in the hospital trying to recover from the attack from last night. The Grizzly has been run off from my house a couple of times before and multiple people have pictures of him as well during citings. He’s been in our area since Oct. 2019. FWP has tried to catch him with a live trap as well about that time. They had even bangers going over his head and the bear did not care. FWP is trying to say I went looking for the bear which is wrong. I have been in that grain shed multiple times over the years and we were not expecting a grizzly to be in the barn what so ever on the prairie lands. Thank God my wife and daughter were in the truck to scare the bear off of me, otherwise, I don’t think I would be showing this clip. He would have skinned me alive as the food sources are not readily available in this area. You can go to the Great Falls Tribune paper on July 30 2020 to see the truth. I won’t be bought or silenced from FWP and they are mad. If you truly love your family as I do, you need to protect them. If this is happening now on the prairies among our farmers and ranchers it will just keep getting worse. Please protect your wife and kids and your older generation of people to keep them from getting killed. Let’s get these grizzlies delisted. We need to stop this from happening to someone else’s loved one, its’s not right when grizzlies are more important than us humans. If you want to see more on this Grizzly just send me a friend request. Be safe all my friends.
In an interview with KRTV Shanun reveals more of the story.
“He’s come to my house a couple of different times, my wife and I would haze him away from our house with our truck,” Rammell said. “But he was real close, he was ready to jump over into the corrals where the pigs are. So he’s been a real pest.”
“I looked at the tracks and I knew it was him, ’cause I know his tracks. And I just wanted to know if he was still in the area or if it was another bear that came up there to live.”
“So I went to the building, I looked in slowly to the right-hand side and didn’t see no corn in there,” he said. “And so I looked to the left, all of a sudden I hear this growl and he comes flying out of there right off the bat.”
“I didn’t stand a chance,” Rammell said. “He came out at me really fast.” Shanun struggled with the bear, grabbing its ears and trying to keep it away from his face and neck, but was soon overpowered. “He knocked me down. And I remember rolling into my belly and he jumped on my back and bit me full force trying to rip off my shoulder. I just laid there quietly then because I couldn’t do nothing.”
