Robert Biggs, 69, of Paradise said he went out hiking and gold panning Monday morning near Whiskey Flats, and stopped to watch a mother bear with a yearling and a cub sitting on a stream bank, ABC News reported Friday.
Biggs said he was turning to leave when a mountain lion jumped onto his back. He said he hit the lion on the head with a rock pick and he turned to see the mother bear grab the mountain lion by the neck and throw it to the ground.
This store gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "bear with me"

I love this thread.
Oh my the visual is awsome too made me smile, thank you for sharing Siv!
I call bullshit. He was 69 years old, he just made it up to be able to tell a story to his buddies.
Mama bear came and saved him?
I was hoping this thread would bring Bear Stories out of hibernation

"he turned to see the mother bear grab the mountain lion by the neck and throw it to the ground."
Whoa, just picture that in your head
Bears are unpredicable so it could be true. Its a really cool story and I like bears even if they do raid campsites. they are only hungry.
