Hunter and Hunted: Kodiak Attack

Hunter and Hunted: Kodiak Attack
Nothing in the North American woods is more powerful or deadly than a brown bear and the Kodiak archipelago in Alaska is home to 3,000 of these fearsome giants. But experienced outdoorsmen know that fatal bear attacks are rare. Then, bears violently maul two hunters just 20 miles and 24 hours apart. Only one of the hunters makes it out of the woods alive. Forensic experts re-open attack scenarios and uncover evidence, shedding light on these deadly encounters.
