I think grandad was a lunch time snack for the two and a fight broke out. (LOL) Man Saved from Mountain Lion Attack by Bear Sam Cohen FOX40 News 10:51 p.m. PDT, March 29, 2012 BUTTE COUNTY— A man was rescued from a mountain lion attack, by a bear. No, this isn’t the latest children’s movie, this happened Monday morning in Butte County. Robert Biggs, 69, was walking along trails he knows well near the town of Paradise, about 90 miles north of Sacramento, when he saw a bear and her cub. He says he watched the pair for a while, then turned to leave. <HR class=hr-promo>Attention DirecTV Subscribers: You may lose FOX40 this weekend.

He started fighting for his life. “I had a rock in my right hand, and I come around and swing and hit him in the side of the head, and it made a big screeching sound. And I come back to swing again, and I come around, and just about half way there, I see this dark figure grabbing the neck of the mountain lion and tearing it down the ground behind me,” recalled Biggs. He says that dark figure was the mama bear he had been watching with her cub just minutes before. Biggs believe the bear jumped in to save him. “I’m sure the bear was trying to save me. The way she was looking at me just two minutes before I was standing there watching her, and she was looking at me like we were old friends,” said Biggs. After wrestling for a few minutes, the bear and her cub and the mountain lion each walked off heading their own way. Biggs walked off, too, with a few scratches. “He came home this time, blood all over his pants. His arm; he had skin hanging off his arm. He had these puncture wounds and scratches,” said his wife Suzanne Biggs. Despite the scare and scratches, Biggs says he will continue to explore the trails in his area.
