On July 22, 2008, Allena was working on her ranch in California, when a black bear appeared out of nowhere and attacked her. The attack left Allena with severe injuries to her jaw, lips, earlobes, cheeks, mouth and forehead. She has undergone two tissue repair surgeries and two bone grafts to replace lost bone, as well as a dental reconstruction. See images of Allena's journey, from attack to reconstruction.
