Anyone know the story behind this one? I saw the pictures online from the incident and I am amazed that this guy is even alive. His face was literally removed. I'm hoping he makes the fullest recovery possible. Big grizzly bear also.

Man mauled by bear near Denali Highway
Michelle Theriault Boots
April 17, 2016

A man was flown to a hospital Friday after being mauled by a bear near the Denali Highway, the Alaska State Troopers said Sunday.

Troopers were not releasing details such as the man's name or the severity of his injuries as of Sunday afternoon, according to troopers spokesman Tim DeSpain.

The man and at least one companion were in an area near Mile 68 of the Denali Highway on Friday when the attack happened. The circumstances of the mauling were not clear Sunday, but DeSpain said they may have been hunting.

The injured man was taken to the highway by snow machine, DeSpain said. A LifeMed helicopter flew him to further medical treatment.

A wildlife trooper was traveling to the area Saturday to investigate.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.

If that man in the middle of the three in that gun store is the same as the man who had his face ripped off .....

That was one helluva surgeon and surgical team that put him back together again!!

Something ain't right.

No way those two pics are the same man; or if it is the same man, it isn't this mauling.

Heal like that in 17 days? Nu-uh.

It is the same man, and it was that mauling.

Apparently looked worse than it was.

Wes Perkins (Nome - 5 years ago) is more realistic:

That's what happens when a bear smacks you with a left. You don't want to know what a right looks like.
