Hunter Attacked After Surprising Mother Bear With Cubs

Alaska – This week, a Michigan man, who was hunting along the upper East Fork Indian River outside of Glennallen, was mauled by a mother bear who was with her three cubs. According to a release from the Alaska State Troopers, the man was able to fend off the angry sow with bear spray.

According to the release, Alaska Wildlife Troopers received the report on the evening of Sept. 6. The agency said:

Nicholas Kuperus, age 33 of Michigan, and his hunting partners surprised a sow grizzly bear with three cubs. Kuperus was attacked by the sow and received serious puncture wounds to his arms but was able to deter and stop the attack using bear spray.

A State aircraft (PA-18 Super Cub) was dispatched to the area and was able to land on a nearby ridgetop. The man was transported to an ambulance in Glennallen. No other injuries were reported.

  1. That’s what the Hunter deserved! Hunting bears when they have babies means the babies will die! What’s the matter with these people ? Shame on Alaska for allowing bear hunting. Hope more hunters get the same

  2. I mean, he was a hunter. Not enough happened to him, he should’ve been killed. We don’t need this walking trash around us (and by us, I mean wildlife too). Any “person” who makes survival harder for innocents is using oxygen they don’t deserve.

  3. I feel no sympathy for him. If people can kill animals why should it be not OK for them to do the same especially when one is protecting her cubs? I agree with everything that was said here so no need to say more.

  4. I understand the anger, but I didn’t see anything that says they were bear hunting. They’re usually deer hunters. I will not eat venison or any other meat obtained by hunting but I do watch a reality show that focuses on several families that do hunt for subsistence food and I think that’s an appropriate way to feed themselves. Where I live there are game ranches that raise whitetail and offer “hunts” to “hunters”…… I think that’s horrible and wish the fish n game dept would put a stop to sport hunting.

    • Since when do Hunters KILL for “subsisence food?” — BULLSHIT! — that’s a poor excuse for KILLING — Hunters LIKE to KILL — STOP with cruel, hateful HUNTING — they do NOTHING for the Animals or the Planet — they manage to SNUFF OUT the life from Animals — this is a BAD thing – an EVIL thing — how about
      Hunters STOP KILLING — How about the “Hunters” find another pastime & leave the Animals alone!

  5. It’s a pity that beautiful bears don’t know how to use guns – she could have shot him with his own gun and then shoved it up his arse. Well done mama bear ❤️

  6. Nicholas Kuperus, age 33 of Michigan got what he deserved and if he didn’t have man-made bear spray he would not have survived. Wanna be a man? Hunt just like an animal = no weapons!! Just you and the opponent. Hunters are not fighting fair. I just don’t respect the sport because it’s not a sport when you have weapons and your opponents don’t.
