A man kept a starving grizzly bear at bay in northwest Alberta by wielding his chainsaw. Bruno Graw found himself under attack by the aggressive bear close to the B.C. border. The bear approached a camp despite the presence of people. It wasn’t scared by the sound of the saw.

The bear, estimated to be three or four years old, was acting so boldly because of its extreme hunger. Graw gave the animal a gash on the left side of its head with the chainsaw. The bear was eventually shot and killed a few days later, said one news report.
