When 60-year-old Virginia hunter Thurman Hensley walked up to the 600-pound black bear he shot with his muzzleloader on Friday, he thought he’d killed the bruin of a lifetime. When the beast suddenly reared up and attacked, Hensley found himself in the fight of his life. His hunting partners emptied their muzzleloaders at the bear then used their gunstocks to beat the animal back. Hensley was airlifted to the University of Virginia Medical Center and was updated to “good” condition over the weekend. Here’s the full story.
