The bear scalped the old man. Photos of him taken after the attack were truly horrific. Bohns condition was not immediately available, but Jennifer Bondy at the Alpine Lodge said she’d been informed he was in stable condition and expected to survive.

“Bohn was driven to the Denali Highway by snowmachine where he was flown by LifeMed to Anchorage.”

Recent photos indicate doctors did a miraculous job of putting him back together and friends say he has fully recovered.
