Florida man describes deadly bear attack that killed hunting guide and left him severely wounded.
(WESH) — A Florida man is sharing his account of a deadly bear attack.

Corey Chubon survived the attack, but hunting guide Mark Uptain, did not.

Chubon and Uptain were bow hunting Thursday evening in Jackson, Wyoming and shot and elk.

Unable to find the elk Thursday, the pair left and went back to pack it out Friday. As they were preparing to take the animal out, two bears attacked them.

"I don't even know if I would ever even imagine seeing something like that happening in my life," Chubon said. "In probably one of the most poignant moments of all of it, when that bear did have me by the back of the leg, thinking to myself, this is it, this is my death, this is how I'm dying."
