A big stick. . . .
From The Province:
_“She put me down twice. I knew if she put me down again, chances are I wouldn’t get up,” Jim West, 45, said Tuesday.
“It wasn’t fight or flight. It was live or die. . . .”
Grabbing a nearby stick that was about eight centimetres in diameter and a 1.5 metres long, West turned to see the bear running at him.
He lifted the stick just as she came up on him, hitting her smack-dab between the ears.
“She stopped in her tracks. I had stunned her and she shook her head.
“My mind immediately turned to driving in 10-inch spikes with a sledgehammer and I hit her until I crushed her skull,” he said._
