A 65-year-old fisherman survived a black bear attack in an outhouse at Dunbar Lake in Ontario on Saturday. Gord Shurvell of Winnipeg says he was using the facilities when a bear burst in. "[H]e grabbed my pants that were down around my ankles ... and he just kept coming," Shurvell said. The bear dragged Shurvell about 15 meters from the outhouse and left deep wounds on his back and head. Shurvell's fishing partner killed it with a shotgun. Local officials say there has been increased bear activity in the area but no reported attacks.
