The hunter becomes the hunted: ‘dead’ bear shot with a gun jumps up and attacks his would-be killer

  • Alex Machavo, 22, was attacked and bitten repeatedly by a bear after shooting him
  • Machavo and the animal struggled down a hill
  • The fighter’s injuries did not appear life-threatening


A hunter is cruelly mauled after a misshot failed to kill a bear.

Alex Machavo, of Medford, Oregon, was attacked by the injured animal near Shady Cove on Thursday.

According to Andrea Carlson, a local sheriff’s spokeswoman,the hunter and his wounded target rolled down a 15-meter high embankment as the bear bites 22-year-old Machavo all the way down.

Black bears number about 30,000 in Oregon and are the most common bear in North America

A second hunter, 24-year-old Nathan Shinn of Phoenix, Oregon, was eventually able to shoot and kill the injured animal.

Responding delegates found Machavo on a forest road and had him rushed to a Medford hospital.

Machavo’s condition was not available, but Carlson says his injuries did not appear life-threatening.

Shinn was unharmed. Carlson says the hunters had a tag that allowed them to legally shoot the bear.
