"One of our hunters, J. Kennedy, had a most narrow escape from a male Grisly Bear....Finding it impossible to outrun the animal, and his rifle missing fire, Kennedy sprang up a small oak which chanced to be near; the bear was so close behind that he seized him by one paw on the back and the other under the right arm, but fortunately his clothing was so old that it gave way, or he must have perished." Botanist David Douglas, Sketch of a Journey to the Northwestern Parts of the Continent, 1824-1827
