    An Alaska man managed to fight off a bear and save his family, and he escaped with only minor injuries. Toby Burke, his wife, and their three children were bird-watching in Alaska when a bear charged them. The family shouted and waved their arms in an attempt to scare off the bear, but it didn’t work, so Toby got between his family and the bear and used a scope attached to his camera to beat the bear. It bit him in the arm but got discouraged by the fighting man and ran off.
