May be of interest.

A Canadian hiker has been found alive after a bear destroyed his survival equipment and left him stranded in the wilderness for three months.
Marco Lavoie, 44, was starving and dehydrated amid heavy snow after surviving a bear attack on his campsite in August, according to Quebec Provincial.
Mr Lavoie set out on a  :pok: canoeing trip on the Nottaway river, around a thousand miles north of Montreal, on July 16.

Al : "Women!"

I wonder if it was a Bear Grylls or Les Stroud emergency survival kit?

Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.

Well, the Grylls one would be "Bear-proof", so that's got to be Les  :whistle: :facepalm:
