A woman who was attacked by a bear in the middle of the night at a busy campground was bitten on her arm and leg before she instinctively played dead so the animal would leave her alone, she said Thursday.
At least one bear rampaged through the campground near Yellowstone National Park on Wednesday, killing one man and injuring Deb Freele of London, Ontario, and another man.
Appearing on the network morning talk shows from a Wyoming hospital, Freele said she woke up just before the bear bit her arm.
"I screamed, he bit harder, I screamed harder, he continued to bite," she said.
Her survival instinct kicked in, and she realized that the screaming wasn't working.
