Hanna meets a Bear
TV host and zookeeper Jack Hanna
says he took his own advice and used pepper spray on grizzlies headed
The Columbus Zoo keeper and frequent David Letterman guest says he was
with his wife and other hikers in
Montana's Glacier National Park on Saturday when they saw the mother
bear and two large cubs coming toward them.
Hanna and the others moved slowly back up the trail to a clearing and
stood still while the mother and one cub passed by.
Hanna says the other cub, weighing about 125 pounds, charged toward the
hikers. Hanna sprayed the bear in the face, and it fled.
Hanna had recently filmed a message for the National Park Service
encouraging hikers to carry pepper spray. AP
