Jackson was outside having coffee on his property where he was building a house, when the animal began attacking him shortly before 8 a.m. local time.

“It appears that a male black bear attacked Mr. Jackson, took him by surprise, and dragged him approximately 75 feet down an embankment,” the sheriff’s office described. After hearing Jackson’s screams, neighbors tried to dissuade the bear by yelling and honking their car horns, but the animal would not budge. A neighbor then retrieved his rifle and shot the bear, killing it.


“Unfortunately, at that time Mr. Jackson succumbed to his horrific injuries,” the sheriff’s office news release said. The Arizona Department of Fish and Game told authorities that the incident was highly unusual, as a similar incident occurred in the mid-1980s. Officials are flabbergasted that there was nothing at the location that would necessarily have attracted the bear.

“At first glance, there did not appear to be anything at the site that would have precipitated a bear attack, such as food, a place to cook or access to water,” the sheriff’s office said. Officials with the Arizona Department of Fish and Game believe the bear’s aggression was a “predatory response,” but aren’t sure what caused it.

“Our deepest condolences go out to the family of Mr. Jackson,” Sheriff David Rhodes said in a statement. I cannot express how deeply saddened this situation is and can only say that our prayers are with you. The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is actively investigating the incident. Authorities ask residents not to shoot the bears unless they sense an imminent threat.Read More……
