This is pretty scary but it's true… bear attacks have been on the rise!
Most recently, a 12-year-old girl,
Abby Wetherell, was attacked while jogging one night.
She was running around her neighborhood in Cadillac, Michigan when a bear popped out of nowhere and knocked her down from behind!
Abby tried to get up but the bear kept charing her, so she did all she could do… she played dead.
And that's what saved her life!!
After some surgery for a few deep cuts in her thigh, she's okay and recovering at home.
Check out the video (above) to learn some tips that may save your life in the event of a bear attack.
At Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, two hikers were left injured after an encounter with a grizzly bear!
That must've been terrifying!!
The beast charged the two hikers, leaving one of them with claw and bite marks and the other with injuries that were treated at the scene.
The hikers apparently came across a young grizzly that afternoon before the attacking bear charged!
We guess it was the mama bear, out protecting her cub.
Still, that must've been the scariest thing ever!!
We're so glad that no one was
killed or seriously injured.
Don't mess with a mama bear!!

Jana Witteropp was a 20-year-old German tourist, visiting Maui, Hawaii.
She was snorkeling off the coast of White Rock beach, as we previously

Rick Moore, 57, was one of the first people on the scene. He said:
Awww! This little Visla puppy is so crazy adorbz!!
His owner was just filming the little cutie playing around, messing with a doorstop.
But it's an ahmayzing video because this puppy is clearly having so much fun!
Just look at him! He keeps swatting at that doorstop!
And the more he hits it, the more it springs and makes noises and just eggs him on.
It's taunting him! Ha!
We could watch this puppy battle a doorstop allllll dayyyyyy!!

At Kansas City International Airport (KCI), radar controllers were actually forced to evacuate due to a spider infestation!!
An employee was bitten, the third employee in a few weeks, and it caused enough of a panic to force the evacuation of the building.
During the evac, as many as five flights were delayed up to 15 minutes.
Exterminators were called in, and they discovered a nest egg underneath the radar controllers' desks.
They believe the bites were from a mama spider who was protecting her babies. We can understand that instinct but that doesn't make it any less terrifying!!
Check out the video (above) to learn a little more about how some tiny spiders scared a whole building of people!
Shark Week is all too real, folks!
Erik Norrie is lucky to be alive after a shark took a big bite out of his leg!!
He was off the coast of the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas, spearfishing when a shark came out of nowhere and just bit a chunk off of his left leg!
The chunk was pretty big, and blood was pouring out! He really thought he was going to die, but luckily, his wife and four daughters were there to tend to him until a nearby doctor, who just happened to be in the area, was able to get there and help.
What are the odds of that? Someone's got this man's back!
Using rubber bands from his spear, he was able to stop a good amount of bleeding. Then it was off to the hospital where he's currently recovering.
Erik going to need several skin grafts but he's confident doctors will get his leg looking and feeling just about normal again.
Check out the video (above) to see how this man is in such good spirits after surviving such an awful attack.
