Grizzly Bear Attack

Joe Williams was a 20-year-old looking for adventure on his first day working at Glacier National Park when he and a friend spotted a female grizzly bear. Williams got tangled with the bear, getting mauled and fighting back, while his friend was able to run for help. Williams recounts the event to host Dick Gordon in this conversation and explains what the event has come to mean to him in the years since. The original version of this story aired July 3, 2008.
