A black bear broke into a cabin near downtown Gatlinburg, Tennessee, on Saturday and attacked a man inside.
The bear broke through partially-locked French doors and went straight for the kitchen, according to CBS News. After the man found the bear in the kitchen, the bear attacked him.
The man escaped the attack and called 911 from inside a locked bedroom, CBS News reported. Family members then drove him to the hospital.
A man vacationing in Gatlinburg was injured over the weekend when a black bear entered his cabin and charged at him, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency announced
“The bear charged the man and swatted at him causing serious injuries to his face and the top of his head,” the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Association (TWRA) said in a news release, reported the Charlotte Observer. “The bear also scratched him across his back as he retreated to the bedroom where he locked himself in and called 911.”
Officials found a bear matching the man’s description on Sunday and euthanized it, reported the outlet. The bear was a 2-3-year-old female with no cubs
This is the second time in a week authorities have euthanized a black bear for attacking a person. Authorities killed another black bear after it mauled a woman in Leavenworth, Washington.
Tennessee Bears. A class of their own, like Florida Man?
The bear "swatted at him?" So what? Marjorie Taylor Greene Swatted for 6th Time Last Night
Man lives after bear breaks his spine and keeps him as food inside den.. The bear preserved me as food for later’, he explained..
If bears ever learn to pick locks...look out.
Keep bear spray close to you in the Smokies. Should be all you need. Keep a 1911 even closer just in case it fails.

Whatever fanciful thoughts were playing in that bear’s head, it just had to act out on them.
The bear had a perfectly good opportunity to just walk away, but did it? NOOOOO! - just had to keep pushing the envelope, and trip the snare it put itself into.
Black Bears Matter...
Why do they say it’s a black bear. Shouldn’t they do the same as the do for humans doing violent things? Ignore the color and use the term “ursa youth?”
NAh, go all in have a quality rifle chambered for .375 H&H across your lap.
Conroe couple fends off bear at Colorado cabin.. Bill Williams was able to bring down the bear with a rifle but it was a harrowing night they won’t soon forget... Williams put his Uberti 1866 Yellowboy carbine rifle by the bed.
Then at 3 a.m. they were awakened by a thundering crash as the bear came through one of the cabin windows.
“It sounded like an explosion when he slammed the window open,” said Williams. “I grabbed the Yellowboy and walked to the opening from the bedroom to the living room
Laughed out loud! - yeah, that would work. I happen to like black bears - grizzlies not so much. Bears truly hate pepper spray and avoid it like the devil is chasing them. Cheers

Were there a large number of bears wanting around the neighborhood at the time? Seems it should be pretty easy to figure out.
Here too..but have never broken into a home here, yet.

The common belief that surprising a mother bear with cubs is the most dangerous kind of black bear encounter is inaccurate..~Dr. Stephen Herrero , University of Calgary.
Instead, lone black bears hunting people as a potential source of food are a greater cause of deadly maulings and related predatory attempts..
Meanwhile, Chicago Bears showed they were unexpectedly dangerous in New England last night.
