3. Life Below Zero & Getting Attacked By Grizzly Bear
Sue Aikens is mostly seen on TV on the National Geographic Show Life Below Zero with five other fellow survivors since 2013. The show chronicles the daily activities of subsistence hunters in some of the remotest parts of Alaska.
Aikens runs the Kavik River Camp and has been living in that vast and cold wilderness for over 17 years. She fights with the cold and remoteness of Alaska herself every day. We can see her with her rifle in the show shooting bears to protect her own territory.
If you have to live in a place that’s been surrounded with 83 bears, you are bound to be attacked. Susan was attacked by a bear in 2015 during her years at Alaska.
She did not see the bear coming until it snatched her and started throwing her around like a piece of meat. She remained calm as the eight-foot grizzly fought her and later rolled her over and left.
The first thing she did after that as to take her gun and shot it. She said:
I knew he’d come back and finish it the second time. So I shot him.
After her close shave with death, the middle-aged reality star has been taking extra care about the grizzly six-footers.
