I came across this story in the Missoula newspaper ~ it has been making the rounds in the inland Northwest. How many people do you know who would place themselves in the path of a charging grizzley bear in order to save the life of an 8-year-old child? 25-year-old professional wrangler Erin Bolster did just that a few months ago, while guiding a small group of riders on a forested mountain trail near Glacier National Park. Her mount was a burly white part-Percheron named Tonk (see photo below, click to enlarge). And this is their jaw-dropping story.
