Bravery in the Face of a Bear

On July 30, 2011, this horse and rider team saved the day for an 8-year-old boy whose horse was being chased by a bear. Erin Bolster and her mount, Tonk, fearlessly charged the bear three times before it was frightened away. The boy had been part of a guided trail ride in Montana's Flathead National Forest when the bear attacked. Read more about Tonk and Erin's wild ride in the Spokesman-Review.
