Who has had a bad encounter with a wild animal or a "domesticated" animal, such as a bull, hog, ram, or stallion?  I have had a few close calls, but I am thinking your experiences are probably more noteworthy.

How About Bears.  This article appeared in the "Oregonian" (Portland, OR.) on Sunday, May 11, 1913

                                                        "BEAR  ATTACKS  SURVEYOR

CENTRALIA, Wash., May 10. --  (Special.) --- While running transit lines near McCormick, Chester Ort, a Centralia engineer, was attacked by a huge black bear.  Ort had only a .32 caliber revolver with him, but he emptied the weapon at close range and was fortunate in reaching a vital spot on the beast.  The bear was a big one and the skin, which Ort has as a memento of his encounter, is a valuable one."
