The attack occurred in September of 2013, but was not reported to the public until 2015. The information was obtained with a freedom of information act request. The men were dressing out an elk shot by a client.

Then at about 2:45 p.m., a collared boar grizzly identified
as bear No. 764 came uncomfortably close. The group’s
canister of bear spray was in a backpack by their horses. A
warning shot went off, but the big grizzly didn’t turn back.

“The bear stood up and growled, like something you would see in a movie,” an eyewitness later told investigators.

From less than 10 feet away, the guide and camp worker drew their .44 and .357 magnum revolvers and together fired four times, ending the 17-year-old bear’s life.
