Don’t Blame Bear Attack on the Reefer

A Montana Judge ruled that Worker’s Compensation benefits can be extended for a worker mauled by a grizzly bear.  The Judge ruled that the injured worker was an employee and was within the course and scope of his employment during the attach.  In his ruling, the Judge noted that it was a poor decision on the part of the work to smoke marijuana before feeding the bears.  However, the marijuana did not bring on the attack and the injured worker should not be blamed as such.
