Nov 5 – Man saves woman from bear attack

Erin Greene probably would have died if it had not been for a very brave man. Bill Ayotte who is 69 and retired, ran out armed with only a shovel when he heard the screams of Greene, who was being attacked by a polar bear in Churchill Manitoba.. He distracted the animal so she could get a way, but the bear pounced on him and started to drag him around. The bear finally fled when someone took a run at it with a pickup truck. Ayotte has received one of Manitoba’s highest honors- the Order of the Buffalo Hunt in recognition of his action. This man risked his life for another. His selfless actions remind one of another who not only risked His life, but gave His life. I refer to Jesus, our Lord and Savior of whom Paul, in his letter to the Romans, wrote, “For scarcely for a righteous man will one die, yet perhaps for a good man some would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
