Anchorage, Alaska — An Alaska woman had the scare of a lifetime when using an outhouse in the backcountry and she was attacked by a bear, from below.

“I got out there and sat down on the toilet and immediately something bit my butt right as I sat down,” Shannon Stevens told The Associated Press on Thursday. “I jumped up and I screamed when it happened.”

Stevens, her brother Erik and his girlfriend had taken snowmobiles into the wilderness Feb. 13 to stay at his yurt, located about 20 miles northwest of Haines, in southeast Alaska.

Her brother heard the screaming and went out to the outhouse, about 150 feet away from the yurt. There, he found Shannon tending to her wound. They at first thought she had been bitten by a squirrel or a mink, or something small. ..........(more)

5. Bitten by a bear while bare

My worst fears as a kid using the out house at my grandma's cabin in Colorado realized. I can't imagine the anxiety this will induce for this woman for the rest of her life. Bearcrapperphobia I shall name it.

7. She got spanked

"suspects Shannon’s wound was caused by the bear swatting at her with a paw rather than being bitten."

10. Great.

Murder hornets. Zombie Minks. COVID. Wildfires. Icestorms.

And now, Real Brown Bears in your toilet. (I thought that was just my nickname for my creations...)

I guess we know the answer to the old joke now.

Does a bear shit in the woods? Hell no, he shits IN your toilet.

12. Next time, that bear will rent the upstairs.

Don't sign the lease until you see the place.
