Yes, I think that Peter's comment after being asked what would make things better again, "I think someone should smash Cole's head against a sidewalk so he knows how it feels," is definitely paralleled here. The Bears mauling of Cole is very like Cole's beating Peter. Cole's act was not a "human" act; it was the act of a beast. Cole has taken Peter's role here, and the bear has taken Cole's.

The parallels (simiarities) that are between what peter wanted for Cole and what happens to him is that cole beat peter so peter wanted someone to bat cole agaist the sidewalk to see how it feels
