Yes they both did, The other had some stitches on his head though but no major head injuries. And yes i would rather pull out a .44 mag and a pepper spray.If there's time time grab bear spray there should of been time to pull pistol . So the guy that had his head in bear's mouth got sprayed also. If a bear was chewing on my leg I would surely give him some lead to the head. When and where did this happen ? Did he survive ?
