Rich Moyer awoke at 3am Monday morning to the sound of his dog barking outside. When he got up to let him in a bear came in too and threw him to the ground. In an effort to save his dog he began wrestling the bear.
Rich's wife Angela heard the commotion and came downstairs to see what was happening and the bear threw her onto the patio. Her husband came to her rescue telling the local television station: "After that I go outside to see what happened and I see the bear on top of her on the patio. And I literally dove in to take that bear off of her, and in doing that then, that's when the bear tried to make a meal out of me, and started tearing my head apart."
Suddenly the bear got bored, stopped and walked back into the woods. Rich ended up needing 37 staples and 37 stitches to put his head back together. He also had numerous cuts and puncture wounds on his face and arms. Not nearly as bad as it could've been had he been a smaller man (he is 6'6" and 300 pounds). Luckily the couple's 10 year old son slept through the whole thing.
