Tooth and Claw: True Stories of Animal Attacks
Grizzly Bear Attack - Grouchy Glacier Grizzly

Grizzly Bear Attack - Grouchy Glacier Grizzly

September 17, 2021

Hey everyone, here's the latest episode of Tooth and Claw. Wes has another grizzly bear story to share on this one, with a little bit of a mystery twist. A slight one. I don't want to oversell it or anything, but regardless, its an interesting story with a lot to learn from. Jeff learns that bears probably can't operate cameras, and Mike thinks it's time for "Stop, Drop and Roll" to move over and make room for the next big safety saying.

Grizzly Bear Attack - Al, The Man Who Punched a Bear

Animal Attack News Roundup - Whale Gulps Man, Girl Pushes Bear, and More

July 2, 2021

Hey everyone, here's the newest animal attack roundup where we cover the biggest animal attack stories to hit the news recently. In this episode, we'll be talking about the man who was swallowed by a whale, the California teen who pushed a bear off of her wall to protect her dogs, and a handful of other interesting stories Wes felt were important to share. Wes also thought it important to share some text messages from Mike that were not meant for him, let alone the public at large completely betraying his trust. Meanwhile, Jeff shares a story from his college days that probably should have caused some headlines itself.

Rattlesnake Attack - Heads and Tails: The Western Diamondback

Rattlesnake Attack - Heads and Tails: The Western Diamondback

June 25, 2021
On this episode, Wes covers what might just be the weirdest animal attack we've talked about so far. A lot of misinformation gets dispelled, meaning Mike learns a lot of new things (big surprise), while Jeff has what might just be his most nonsensical idea of how to deal with an attack situation yet.

A quick producers note: We had a small hiccup while recording, hopefully none of you are bothered by it. You may not even notice it. But if you do, just know that it gets cleared up at around the 20 minute mark.
Thanks for listening everyone! You all are the best, we appreciate so much all of your support. We hope you enjoy the episode!
Cassowary Attack - Kicking and Screaming

Cassowary Attack - Kicking and Screaming

June 11, 2021

This is one of the more unique episodes we've done so far, on an animal that many people haven't even ever heard of. Or maybe that's just Mike. Wes shares a bunch of different cassowary attack stories, Jeff poses a really good and related (?) question, and the crew learns all kinds of cool things about cassowaries as well as introduces a few new wrinkles to the regular episode formula.

Thanks for listening! We hope you enjoy the episode.

Black Bear Attack: Bear vs. Bacon

Black Bear Attack: Bear vs. Bacon

May 28, 2021

Today we go over the story of Cynthia Dusel-Bacon, who spent her summers  working in the wilds of Alaska taking geological samples. But on one  fateful day in 1977, she was the one that was sampled; by a relatively  small but still insanely powerful black Bear that had decided it wanted  to make a meal of her. If you weren’t aware, Wes loves bears, so he  spends most of the episode explaining why the attack happened and how  black Bear attacks are so rare considering how many of them there are.  Also Jeff tries (and fails) to pronounce some of your names and we  finally get Mike to admit which cartoon bears he loves the most.
