US: Man spears bear, beats his chest

AN AMERICAN hunter could face charges for spearing a black bear in the Canadian woods before leaving it overnight to die. Josh Bowmar, who posted a video of the spearing, baited a trap for the bear near Edmonton, Alberta, before spearing it.

In the video, the former competitive javelin thrower said he did not follow the bear immediately after spearing it because "tracking bears at night is obviously extremely dangerous”.

Dancing with joy, he boasts to the camera: "I just did something I don't think anybody in the world has ever done.”
