A man has been rescued after spending three months in a remote forest during which he survived a bear attack, and wound up emaciated and clinging to life.
Police are sharing the improbable story of 44-year-old Marco Lavoie, an experienced hiker who set off on what was supposed to be a two-month excursion on July 16, 2013.
Police can't say exactly when that bear attack occurred. But it's believed that in mid-August, halfway through his planned trip, the animal attacked his encampment, ate his food, and destroyed his survival gear.


edit ... copy and paste problem on the title if the mods can fix ...
