that she has dementia and is prone to blacking out. at first it seemed like an incredible feat, hunter, josh bowmar went out hunting armed with a spear. he let it fly and hit the animal from 40 feet away. that's when the trouble began. turns out bowman had baited the bear with food. after he hit the animal. he let it run away and die only to retrieve the body the next day. what's more, he posted the kill online. don dahler reports. >> josh bowmar, an ohio fitness trainer and former all american javelin champion. he spent several years preparing for this type of hunt which happened earlier this year. canadian authorities are now reportedly investigating whether the 26-year-old broke any laws. >> the 13 minute video shows josh bowmar celebrating after
