In the Canadian woods, a foraging bear breaks open an ancient Indian pot releasing a spirit that possesses the animal. Elsewhere, Wolverine is assisting Shaman in tracking a violent pair of convenience store robbers. Wolverine confronts them as they terrorize a family on a camping trip, when the possessed bear also arrives.
As the crooks, the mother and her son escape in their Jeep, leaving the father behind, Wolverine battles the creature, trying to keep his animalistic nature from overcoming him. Sheathing his claws, he stuns the bear with a series of blows, allowing Shaman to recapture the spirit.
Meanwhile, having crashed the vehicle into a tree, the robbers threaten to kill the mother and her son, just as Wolverine arrives to subdue them.
