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.
