A Winnipeg man who was dragged out of an outhouse by a black bearis recovering at home with some cuts on his back and an amazingtale of survival. Gord Shurvell, 65, was camping and fishing with a friend at a cabinby Dunbar Lake, about 60 kilometres north of Sioux Lookout, Ont.,when the bear attacked him early Saturday. Shurvell told CBC News he was in the outhouse, with the door wideopen so he could enjoy the morning view, when the bear barged in. "I'm sitting on the throne, and my feet are sort of up on the'poopstool,' we call it," he said in an interview Wednesday. "So I'm kicking at him to get away, but he grabbed my pants andthat gotch that were down around my ankles. |
And that was the startof it, and he just kept coming." When asked if the attack scared the "you-know-what" out of him,Shurvell replied, "It was already gone!" "I'd already done my business," he added. "All the defence I had isa piece of [toilet] paper in this hand." Survival mode Shurvell said the bear then dragged him by the arm through thebush, and he immediately went into survival mode. "I know if he gets me back there and I pass out, my buddy won'tknow it would take too long to find me. So I'm trying to get atree to slow him down," he said.
Shurvell's friend, 63-year-old Daniel Alexander, said he was insidethe cabin when he heard the commotion outside. "I started out of the cabin and something clicked in, and I thought'bear.' I turned around, went back into the cabin and got the gun,"Alexander said. "In the meantime, Gord is screaming, 'Danny, Danny, Danny! It's abear!'" Alexander said when he found Shurvell and the bear in the bush, heinitially had a difficult time figuring out how to shoot the bearand not his friend. 'Thank God that bear turned' "Just as I started to do that, the bear dropped Gordy and turnedtowards me," Alexander recalled. "The bear was down on all fours, with his head was down.
And assoon as he done that, that's when I shot him, right in the head.Thank God that that bear turned." Shurvell escaped the attack with some scratches on his head, neckand arms, as well as a puncture in the back of his head. Shurvell was treated in a Sioux Lookout hospital and released, andhe returned to Winnipeg late Tuesday. On Wednesday, he received histhird rabies treatment. Shurvell said he is grateful for Alexander's quick action, as hebelieves that was the reason why he survived.
As for next time, Shurvell said he will use the outhouse withoutthe view. "I just left it open because it was a beautiful morning and I wassitting there, enjoying looking out there. You can imagine whatthose sh-thouses [can be] like," he said. "I'll probably put up with the stench and shut the door.".
