A 19-year-old who was camping in Colorado over the weekend woke up to the sound of biting before realizing he was being attacked by a black bear.
According to Time.com:
The teenager, Dylan, said that he awoke to a "crunching noise" that he guessed was the bear's "teeth scraping against [his] skull as it dug in."
The dangerous animal then dragged Dylan, who taught wilderness survival skills at the Christian camp, around ten feet away from the campsite at the Glacier View Ranch in Boulder County. "When it was dragging me, that was the slowest part. It felt like it went forever," he said.
Dylan's fellow members of staff at the campsite tried to scare the bear away and eventually it left the area, leaving the teenager with a bite to the head. He was taken to hospital and has since been released.
