The Youngsters recount the horror

“It shook me around and I didn’t know what to do. Meanwhile, I curled up in a ball and it got me a few more times”, Lowry told in an interview. His friend, however, fought bravely for which Lowry was thankful and that their bond have become stronger.

“I didn’t want to lose my friend. It was bad. There was a big ol’ bear on top of him. I could have run and potentially lost a friend, or get him off and save him”, Kendell told the media.

“It tackled me, chewed me up a bit, and then when it was done it wandered off, and I started calling out for Brady to make sure he was alright”, he continued.

“The bear circled back around, and it got me again, chewed on me, and that’s when it got my head and cheek. And then it went away again for whatever reason”, he concluded.
