Boy Scout Thwarts Bear Attack By Playing Dead

Having avoided serious injury, you could say this scout was prepared. But he says he'll be even more so next time. From the Associated Press:

_[Chris] Malasics said the experience will not deter him from going camping. In the future, though, he intends to make sure he has a pepper spray for bears, and perhaps a gun.

"I know how to shoot," he said._
