Thank god for the generosity of this bear.

These things do happen. When I was small, my mom told me a story about a boy who was abducted by bears. She said it was in the newspaper, so I imagine the abduction occurred in the 1960's or 1970's. According to my mom, this family took a trip into the mountains. They noticed bears drinking water at a lake. When it was time to leave, their son was gone. Afterward, occasionally, people saw the boy at the lake with the bears. I don't know how long these sightings lasted. It all ended when someone found the boy's body at the bottom of a cliff. My mom told me that the bears threw the boy off the cliff. As a warning, my mom told me not to run off with any bears.

A child can go two days without food, sure hungry but it's not life threatening at that point.

Grandma happens to be great great grandma, so she has to be at least 80 leaving a twenty year span between generations.
My question is why is the family leaving 3 kids to be watched by an 80 year old?? One maybe but 3??
Great grandmother does not have to be 80. My brother was a father at 19 a grandfather at 39 he is not yet a great grandfather but he could be as his oldest grandchild is about 17. He is not 60 yet. The great grandmother could be in her 60's or early 70's easily.

More info needed.
No healthy human, even a youngster is going to die of starvation in two days.

unlikely a bear but it could have been another animal acting like a bear

Not sure about bears... I don't think they'd attack the kid, but I doubt they'd help him too...

That said, haven't there been some apes and wolves known to exhibit this type of behavior? Not feeding them, but protecting them from predators and stuff?

Exactly what I was thinking. It would be a very rare thing to happen, but could? be true. What other explanation could there be?

I would think if it was a dog, the dog would still be with the child when they found it.

I see a brilliant career as a fiction-writer in Littlekiddy's future.
