Bears and humans aren't designed to cohabitate. Sometimes, bears get understandably pissed off, forcing humans to throw a “whirring haymaker” at the bear’s jaw, or risk getting all torn up like Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant.
Others, like Jack Ballantyne of Saskatchewan, Canada, invite said bears into a bar-room kumite, and use a wine bottle to banish the beast from whence it came. From The CBC, we learn that Ballantyne was camping in the wilds of La Ronge, Sask., last Friday, before he was accosted by a pissed off bear at 4am.
The 44-year-old was still awake -- having a drink, enjoying the quiet of nature -- when the bear came and took a swipe at him, leaving him with scratches aplenty on his arm. Ballantyne, who is hard of hearing, didn’t hear the bear advance. "All he remembers is that the bear took a swipe at him, hit him and he went flying," said Rose Ballantyne, Jack’s younger sister.
