Yet another reason I like a bathroom in the Casita!

This would not have been fun! Found this article this morning on MSNBC.......
Grabbed from the 'throne': Man on camping trip survives outhouse bear attack

By msnbc.com staff

A 65-year-old Canadian man had a trip to the outhouse that heíll never forget.
Gord Shurvell of Winnipeg says he was doing his business when a black bear barged in and attacked him, leaving him with scratches and a head puncture wound, before his friend shot the animal.

Shurvell recounted his tale of survival to CBC News on Wednesday.
He said he and his friend, 63-year-old Daniel Alexander, were on a camping and fishing trip near Dunbar Lake, about 37 miles north of Sioux Lookout, Ontario, when the attack happened early Saturday.

He told CBC he went to use the bathroom, leaving the door open so he could enjoy the morning view, when the bear barged in.
"I'm sitting on the throne, and my feet are sort of up on the 'poopstool,' we call it," he told CBC.
"So I'm kicking at him to get away, but he grabbed my pants that were down around my ankles. And that was the start of it, and he just kept coming."
He said the bear got a hold of him by the right shoulder and dragged him out of the outhouse toward the bush.
ďIím screaming for my buddy to come with a gun,Ē he said.
Alexander was in the cabin when he heard the commotion.
"I started out of the cabin and something clicked in, and I thought 'bear.' I turned around, went back into the cabin and got the gun," Alexander told CBC.
Alexander said the bear dropped his friend and turned toward him. Thatís when he took aim and shot the bear in the head, killing it.
Shurvell was treated at a hospital for scratches on his head, neck and arms, as well as a puncture in the back of his head.

Hmmmm...maybe bears don't do it in the woods and this bear just ran out of patience waiting for the guy to finish.

like my Scamp bathroom

Another reason to like my Scamp bathroom-wolf spiders as big as dinner plates-well almost as big. Honest-they we huge.
They were at the Kamp Kansas rally in Council Grove , Ks.
Each time during the day I used the restroom-there was at least one in the restroom. Our dog would chase them out.
I would not use the restroom at night-other than that the rally was a lot of fun!

LOL there may be more truth to that than you think! It is very rare for a brown bear to go after a human - trust me I know we get them in our yard all the time.


Edit: OPPPPS that should have said black bear!!!! One never wants to be within a mile of a brown bear - whole different ball game with those fellows! Scary.
