Fletcher Scares Poop Out Of Bear

by The Editors on August 25, 2008

Olympic snowboarder Rosey Fletcher was riding in a truck with Peter Grunwaldt in her hometown of Girdwood, Alaska on Saturday August 23, 2008 when a bear ran right into the side of the truck. A nearby crowd of people were watching three bear cubs by the side of the road when the accident happened, according to a story in the Anchorage Daily News.

“It was a freak show,” Fletcher said Sunday. “The police and an ambulance show up, everybody’s running around with bear spray, all these ladies are on cell phones screaming, ‘There’s three cubs in the tree! . . . Then one of them goes, ‘Wait! You’re that snowboarder, that Olympic medalist! You’re the one who ran over the bear?”

Luckily, Rosey, nor the bear were injured. “There was no blood on the truck, Fletcher said. Only hair and bear scat. “We scared the poop out of him,” she said.
