“I remembered an article that my grandmother gave me a long time ago that said large animals have bad gag reflexes,” Dellwo said. “So I shoved my right arm down his throat.”
As a result, the bear fled, and Dellwo walked away with his life and a helluva story. He received stitches and staples in his head and face at a nearby hospital, where he's still recovering from puncture wounds on his leg and a swollen eye, according to the report. And yet, Dellwo said he doesn't blame the bear, which he said was "just as scared" as he was.
Note to everyone: don't fight guys named Chase Dellwo... unless you want a fist down your throat.
