The Night Of The Grizzly

Story/poem My husband and I were invited to go on a camping trip. I being a city girl - it was a real trip for me. It was quiet late at night, we were on our camping site. Everybody had gone to bed. I was not used to the outdoors, so I was having trouble sleeping. Suddenly there was a loud noise outside. I knew there was trouble, even though I was inside. I heard someone get out of his tent. He came screaming. There's a bear, there's a bear. Please come out and see. I said I'm not going. I'll stay here until you kill that thing. Soon everybody went outside, carring riffles and everything they could find. The BEAR was going through a rampage, destroying everything in it's path. My husband had gone out with a gun in his hand, but someone else took the first shot. I was still inside not making a sound, when I heard the shot. I said to myself it's time to come out. I thought I would see the Bear dead, but to my shock the Bear had left. He took all our food and ran away. Someone said - did you see the size of that BEAR? Another guy said yes - it was a Grizzly. At hearing that, I think I fainted. Then I was glad I never saw it, but no one will ever forget the night the Grizzly came...

I also watched nat geo, show called Living with Grizzlies, they /one ? killed him at the end. His girlfriend had someone go to Alaska,,,his death was caught on his camera ;{

    Did you know there is a book entitled "Night Of The Grizzlies"? It is a true story about two separate but nearly simultaneous grizzly bear attacks on humans in Glacier National Park, Montana. Stunning that you wrote this story with this title. Enjoyed reading, and yes, grizzlies can be terrifying. There are also quite beautiful.

    Truly entertaining! I love the twists and turns -Just when you get the courage to go outside, the bear disappears. The bear ran with all the food, LOL! And you just had to go and faint - nice touch. This is a beautifully told story in a poem Lucilla!
