Robert Biggs, 69, was in the Bean Soup Flats near Whisky Flats and wanted to get back to Paradise. The California man was watching a family of bears and had decided to go home when he was attacked by a mountain lion. However, before the lion could kill him, the mother bear ripped the lion off of him and fought the lion until it ran off. The mother bear then went back to her cubs and left Biggs alone.
Once again the majestic Bears show their strength and transcendent power. A meat packer from Wisconsin did not save Biggs. It was a bear.
The other team in the news this week has a far less compelling tribute. When a convicted sex offender and child killer Jesse Joe Hernandez, 47, was about to be put to death this week, he was asked for any final words. Some such condemned men use these words to call for an end to the death penalty or ask forgiveness. Hernandez chose “Go Cowboys” as his final words before being executed.
