DRAINEY INLET, B.C. — A man working in the forest on British Columbia’s central coast was mauled by a grizzly Wednesday.
Sgt. Scott Norris with the B.C. Conservation Officer Service says other crew members quickly came to the man’s defence, but his injuries are significant.
Norris says the man was part of a crew working in steep forest terrain near Drainey Inlet, about 400 kilometres northwest of Vancouver.
Officers with the service’s specialized predator attack team were flown into the area on Thursday to assess any public-safety risk and to try to determine what happened.
Norris says they don’t know yet what set off the attack.
