A Teen Woke Up To A Bear "Crunching" On His Head And Forget Camping Ever Again

There was a "crunch" sound. A CRUNCH SOUND.

Dylan ended up with nine staples in the back of his head. "I feel really lucky I was laying perfect for it to grab the back of my head and not my face or my eyes," he said.

“When it was dragging me, that was the slowest part. It felt like it went forever," Dylan told Denver ABC-affiliate KMGH. After the attack, the bear was tracked by local wildlife officials and killed.

Dylan, says the attack hasn't deterred him from future wilderness excursions.


"I'm not afraid of the bears. I'm not afraid of sleeping outside anymore," Dylan told KMGH. "You just have to be aware and respect the animals."
