Canadian Archer Fends Off Grizzly With Hunting Arrow

From the Edmonton Sun:

_When a stinky, angry bear charged him, Rory Chapple was probably glad he's a bow hunter and president of an archery club.
_

_As that grizzly came at Chappl. . . in the wilderness near Kechika River in northern B.C., the 39-year-old father of two stabbed the bruin with an arrow in a last-ditch attempt to save his bacon, piercing the raging animal's throat and living to tell the tale. . . .
_

_"It was a glancing blow but as soon as that arrow struck home, she went from gnarling and growing and huffing at me to gurgling," Chapple said.
_

The bear ran off and Chapple escape_d _with ripped pants, a sore back and a story which has garnered national attention.
