Chernoski stood in the way of a predator, not to let him into the room where slept the children — two 12-year-old twins. “We looked at each other, and he gave me a slap in the face, the man says. — Then spun and hit me on the back”. Later the doctors tell him that the bear claws almost touched his eyes and the carotid artery.

bleeding from wounds on his forehead and neck, Chernoski jumped and shouted to scare the bear. “It was clear that I would be in big trouble if he does not leave,— says the man. But fortunately, by the time he decided that there was nothing else to do, and went himself.”

Employees of the environmental Agency of the state of Colorado was tracked down and killed the bear. DNA from the bear tracks in the house Chernosky plan to compare the DNA of dead animal.
