News of bear attacks and bear maulings have always had a way of captivating both those who live in the American West and those who do not.
The mauling of Hugh Glass in the 1820s, which is disputed among some historians as a legend, has survived well into the current time, with 2015’s The Revenant film.
In 1905 a 15-year-old Native girl named Annie Big Elk made headlines nation wide for defending herself against two grizzly bears.
According to news reports at the time, no one believed the girl had killed one bear with her rifle and another with her knife after a sudden encounter while hiking for berries. But when curious citizens retrieved the carcasses, they knew the story to be true.
See a clipping of the Jan. 9, 1906 Republican-Northwester, an Illinois paper, to read the full story.
