Nat Geo WILD goes inside the harrowing accounts of two U.S. grizzly attacks that left one dead and others critically injured. The heart-pounding encounters are revisited in terrifying detail through victim and eyewitness accounts and vivid recreations. Bear expert Casey Anderson weighs in on what may have caused them, the best way to react and how to prevent them from happening again.
