Dylan McWilliams might be the luckiest guy in the world. He might also be the unluckiest guy in the world. That depends on whether you think surviving a rattlesnake bite, a bear attack, and a shark bite within three years is fortunate or if he must have created some seriously bad juju to be bitten by all those animals in the first place. For the past few years, McWilliams, originally from Colorado Springs, Colorado, has been backpacking around the United States and Canada, making money on odd jobs and as an outdoors survival instructor. Below, McWilliams tells the story of each attack—any one of which could have killed him. The sun was setting. I had just switched from my climbing shoes to sandals and rolled up my pants to cool off.
Although an experience like that might make some afraid of future ocean swims, McWilliams was mad the cuts kept him from boogie-boarding. Of course, McWilliams is almost used to being attacked by large creatures with big teeth after his bear encounter last year.

Man Who Survived Bear Attack Gets Bitten By A Shark
An American man who was bitten by a shark in Hawaii has also previously been attacked by a rattlesnake and mauled by a bear. In less than four years, Dylan McWilliams, from Colorado, has had three very unlucky encounters with deadly animals. The year-old was bodyboarding in the ocean off Kauai on Thursday, when what he believed to be a tiger shark between six and eight feet long bit his leg.

All rights reserved. A tiger shark was most likely responsible for Dylan McWilliams' recent bite in Hawaii. But that's not all his bad luck. He was bitten by a shark, attacked by a bear, and bitten by a rattlesnake—all in just over three years. Last week, McWilliams of Grand Junction in western Colorado was body boarding off the island of Kauai, Hawaii, when he felt something hit his leg. The wound required seven stitches and the teeth marks suggested it was a tiger shark. Shark attacks do occasionally happen in Hawaii, especially by tiger sharks, said George Burgess , director emeritus of the Florida Program for Shark Research at the University of Florida.
