Listen To Boy Scout’s 911 Call After Leader Is Dragged Into Cave By A Bear
What did you do last weekend? At Splitrock Reservoir of Rockaway Township and Kinnelon, in Morris County, New Jersey, three Boy Scouts and their Scout Leader were hiking, when they found a cave. The leader went inside, and discovered it was already occupied by a bear.
The bear didn't want company, and so began mauling the leader -- biting him on the shoulders, head and legs. That's when the scouts, all 12 years old, called 911. Here's part of the call:
Scouts are always prepared, but so are bears, and it's hibernation season and they're not to be trifled with. The leader survived the attack -- hitting the bear with a rock hammer and then pulling his shirt over his head, causing the bear to lose interest, according to CNN. He was flown to a local hospital by helicopter.
The bear will be a guest on The Today Show on Thursday, where it will give its side of the harrowing ordeal and then appear in a cooking segment with Hoda and Kathie Lee.
