College Wrestler Fights Off Grizzly Bear To Save Friend In Gruesome Attack

Two wrestlers of Northwest College, Wyoming, survived an attack by a grizzly bear while shed hunting.


Kendell Cummings and Brady Lowry, were attacked by the bear out of nowhere as they were out, shed hunting with two other friends. The animal charged and tackled Brady first, who was knocked down. His friend, Kendell tried to scare the bear off of Brady but that did not work.

Cummings, grabbed the bear in an attempt to save his friend Brady and was mauled twice during the helpless fight. The attack happened after they had separated with the other two. It happened so quickly that they were not able to use the bear spray to defend themselves. They had to engage in a hand to hand combat with the animal.

Reasons still unclear, but which could only be explained as a divine deliverance, the bear took off and Cummings was spared. All the friends were able to make it out alive and was later attended by search and rescue.

Later, after they were admitted in the hospital, the father of Brady Lowry narrated the entire event in a Facebook post and updated the status of the boys, sharing how “college (athletics) builds friendship that never end and builds bonds of family.”

“This was a miracle” wrote Dallas Lowry in his Facebook post. He also cited Daniel 6:22.

My God sent His angel and shut the lions’ mouths, so that they have not hurt me, because I was found innocent before Him; and also, O king, I have done no wrong before you.” Daniel 6:22 (NKJV)
