As grizzly attacked, Canadian man remembered gift from his father
CANADA — Facing down a grizzly bear, Colin Dowler decided to negotiate. "I know this is your territory, I'm just passing through—we don't have to do this," the Canadian recalls saying, per the BBC. It didn't help. Within moments, "I could feel the hot blood." Dowler, on a mountain bike, had been exploring Mount Doogie Dowler—a mountain some 200 miles north of Vancouver that the Vancouver Sun reports was named after his grandfather—when he stumbled upon the male bear on July 29.
