Trapper wrestlers August Harrison, Kendell Cummings, Brady Lowry and Orrin Jackson get a moment to themselves on campus Wednesday between media interviews. The students now have a bond for life after surviving a grizzly bear attack Saturday in the Absaroka Mountains in the Shoshone National Forest.

POWELL — Brady Lowry noticed bear scat as he walked with three fellow Northwest College wrestling teammates along a hillside on the South Fork. They were searching for shed antlers — one of their favorite activities in nearby mountain ranges. The four close friends chose the school in part due to its proximity to the mountains.

Lowry saw more scat — a lot of it. It was fresh.
