Storyboard Description

June 14, 1805 - Lewis Escapes a Grizzly Bear Attack I selected a fat Buffalo and shot him very well. While I was gazing attentively on the poor animal and having entirely forgotten to reload my rifle, a large grizzly bear had crept up on me within 20 steps before I discovered him. At the same instant, he was then briskly advancing on me. I was in an open level plain, not a bush within miles, nor tree less than 300 yards of me. I ran about 80 yards into the water, waist-deep and faced about and presented the point of my espontoon (a spear-like pike). At this instant, he arrived at the edge of the water within 20 feet of me. He suddenly wheeled about as if frightened and retreated.

Storyboard Text

  • One grand evening, Captain Lewis was out hunting a large buffalo. He took aim and fired his weapon...
  • And ended up scoring a direct hit on the fat buffalo!
  • "Dear Lord! My weapon isn't loaded! I must flee!"
  • However, this was the perfect distraction that a wild bear needed in order to close within striking range of it's victim!
  • "Into the water I must go!"
  • It was at this point that Lewis presented his espontoon or spear to the bear after getting waist-deep into the water...
  • And he scared the bear off!
  • "Excellent!"
