    Default The Bear and the Bare Butt

    I bet she looks before dropping her drawers in the future

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska — An Alaska woman had the scare of a lifetime when using an outhouse in the backcountry and she was attacked by a bear, from below.

    “I got out there and sat down on the toilet and immediately something bit my butt right as I sat down,” Shannon Stevens told The Associated Press on Thursday. “I jumped up and I screamed when it happened.”

    Stevens, her brother Erik and his girlfriend had taken snowmobiles into the wilderness Feb. 13 to stay at his yurt, located about 20 miles northwest of Haines, in southeast Alaska.

    Her brother heard the screaming and went out to the outhouse, about 150 feet (45.72 metres ) away from the yurt. There, he found Shannon tending to her wound. They at first thought she had been bitten by a squirrel or a mink, or something small.

    Erik had brought his headlamp with him to see what it was.

    “I opened the toilet seat and there’s just a bear face just right there at the level of the toilet seat, just looking right back up through the hole, right at me,” he said.

    “I just shut the lid as fast as I could. I said, ‘There’s a bear down there, we got to get out of here now,’” he said. “And we ran back to the yurt as fast as we could.”

    I'm guessing the basement of the property was his home for the winter. Even during the winters nap, if you make enough noise they wake. Two separate occasions I had them living under trees that were marked for removal, one of the times the bugger came out from between the roots as I started my back cut.

    MI betting the men in the group were glad someone with the smooth undercarriage was first to sit.

    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?
