My dad has a scar on his chest where a bear swiped him and only got him with one claw. It probably looked a lot like that when it happened. My dad, who is 90 years old, would love to tell you a tale about him being a great hunter and going after the bear and heroically rescuing a damsel in distress, but that's not exactly how it happened. He was visiting a zoo that did not have safety rails. He stood right beside the bear's cage. It reached out and got him. He was actually lucky not to be killed. He has always been really proud of that scar.
