"The bear is coming, it's coming towards us!" yelled 11-year-old Grace Burke to her father.
That's when the bear bounded towards them and Toby Burke yelled to his wife, "Get behind me!"
Toby Burke grabbed the first thing in sight: his scope attached to a 6-foot-long tripod. "I put the scope sideways into the bear's mouth, keeping it away, and it swatted at the scope and severed it," he said.
"It was just me between my family and the bear," he said. "At that point, I made physical contact. All I could do was put my left arm up. Then its mouth clamped down on my forearm. So I remember hitting it in the face with my right arm."

After several minutes of scuffling, the bear gave up and ran away,
I'd pay to see that , I bet the bear was embarrassed
