‘He got his forehead’ –Bear ATTACKS teen with rare disorder as he watched TV in cabin


A black bear entered an Arizona cabin Thursday, May 23, and mauled a 15-year-old boy watching TV before the teen could be rescued.


Brigham Hawkins, who suffers from a rare neurological disorder, was watching television after a long day of fishing in Alpine when the bear walked through the open front door of his cabin.

The black bear took several swipes at Hawkins and fortunately, his loved ones who were in a nearby cabin, hurried over to fend off the beast after they heard the boy screaming, according to reports.


Brigham’s older brother, Parker, heard the commotion and rushed to his sibling. Brigham’s father also sprinted to help his son in the cabin as he suffered injuries from the brazen attack.


The ‘lucky’ teen made it safely and called 911. Authorities reached the scene and tracked down the 3-year-old bear about 120 feet from the cabin, where it was killed.
