To answer a couple of questions... Yes, I will take some pics of the tripod and the tooth mark on the D4.
I did have bear spray, but chose to retreat instead of standing my ground. If the bear hadn't stopped at the camera and continued towards me, It would have been a different story. Also if it was a black bear I would have stood by the gear and made noise and the bear likely would have left me alone, if not, I had bear spray.
I wish that the pics of the bear knocking the camera over were better exposed, but I had a lot on my mind at the time.
I have been contacted by a photography magazine as well as a blog for another company who both want to cover my story, I plan to follow up with these soon
