Today we go over the story of Cynthia Dusel-Bacon, who spent her summers  working in the wilds of Alaska taking geological samples. But on one  fateful day in 1977, she was the one that was sampled; by a relatively  small but still insanely powerful black Bear that had decided it wanted  to make a meal of her. If you weren’t aware, Wes loves bears, so he  spends most of the episode explaining why the attack happened and how  black Bear attacks are so rare considering how many of them there are.  Also Jeff tries (and fails) to pronounce some of your names and we  finally get Mike to admit which cartoon bears he loves the most.
