Canoeist stabs bear to death in Ontario

“A man stabbed a black bear to death with a 15-cm hunting knife, saying he knew he would otherwise become “lunch” after it attacked him and his dog on a canoeing portage in northern Ontario.

“Tom Tilley, a 55-year-old from Waterloo, Ont., said his American Staffordshire dog growled a warning, then rushed to his defence as the bear came at them on a trail north of Wawa on Friday.

“As the dog battled with the nearly 90-kilogram bear, Tilley jumped on its back and stabbed it with his knife.” Photo: Waterloo Region Record/Canadian Press
