The 55-year-old Coquitlam man had his back to the woods while soaking in the hot tub Sunday afternoon when a blow from behind knocked him over in the tub, police said in a statement Monday. When he turned around, he found himself staring at the bruin. He yelled at the animal and made his way into the house to call police.
Police found the bear about 100 yards away in the forest and shot it.
The man was treated for cuts on his head.
