From the Bozeman Daily Chronicle:
Tony Allabastro, a member of the Lewis and Clark Forest Service hotshot crew based in Great Falls, reportedly saw the bear over his shoulder . . . Sandy Hare, public information officer for the LeHardy fire, said Monday.
Before he had a chance to get his bear spray, the grizzly pounced on him and "roughed him up," Hare said.
The bear was "acting instinctually."
“(The bear) just wanted out,” Hare said. “There was something in its way, and it happened to be a human.”_
