There’s always a possibility of running into wildlife when you’re on a hiking trail, but what 26 year old Ashley Swendsen experienced Thursday morning was more than she’d ever imagined.
Five months pregnant, Swendsen walked on a hiking trail near Colorado Springs when she noticed a black bear following ten feet behind her. She thought the bear was more curious than malice, but didn’t take any chances. She ran, scrambling up an embankment, and was hit by a slow-moving car. Luckily, she and her unborn child were unharmed. Still… What are the odds? You can make this stuff up!
Do you have any strange “what are the odds” type story you’d like to share? I’d love to hear it.
