Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 40,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Boy attacked by bear while skiing

Boy attacked by bear while skiing

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
A schoolboy in Sweden was attacked last week by a hibernating bear. He had stumbled into the animal's lair, while skiing at the Funasdalen resort. The startled bear attacked the boy, who managed to escape and was rushed to hospital where he is recovering from serious injuries. ...A police spokesperson said the bear was found but not shot because it was not a threat to civilians.
See: http://news.ninemsn.com.au/national/8229402/skiing-schoolboy-attacked-after-waking-bear

The bear fled into the woods, leaving her cubs to fend for themselves. There are now concerns that the cubs are at risk of starvation, if their mother does not return soon.

the report said he stumbled into its bedroom; you'd probably have been a bit bad-tempered too.

I was puzzled by the cubs bit - I thought hibernating meant sleeping, not giving birth to and nurturing cubs. Puzzled

Hurtle, apparently Brown Bears (not sure about others) give birth during hibernation, the mother bear may not even wake up whilst giving birth.


I have a nasty suspicion (based on knowing what small boys can be like) that maybe the stumbling into the bears den by accident might not be entirely truthful, mind you only an idiot wakes a sleeping bear, only a huge idiot wakes a sleeping bear with young cubs Shocked

Im just wonder, what was the boy realy doing? The boys was locals, they live in Funäsdalen skiresort, When I was living in Härjedalen, where Funasdalen belongs, we know were the bearcaves was, and if there is a cave near the skiarea, Im complete sure the locals know. There is no reason to be scared for bears, there is in Sweden little more than 12 bear attack every year, 95% its hunter with dog that are attacked from the bear, the dog running after the bear, the bear starts to be angry, and run aftre the dog, the dog hide behind the hunter Toofy Grin Toofy Grin Toofy Grin

Er, my point was meant to illustrate that it couldn't have attacked him if it was hibernating....Woken from hibernation, surely? wink
