Another Hunter Attacked By Grizzly Bear In Montana
HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Wildlife officials say a bow hunter from Michigan was attacked by a grizzly bear in southwestern Montana, but suffered only minor injuries.
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials say the hunter, who has not been identified, was hiking alone Friday when he came upon the bear in a meadow near Cinnamon Creek in the Gallatin Canyon.
The hunter backed away as the bear ran toward him. The grizzly knocked him down and apparently bit him on the head.
FWP officials say the bear then retreated, stopping twice and looking at the man before leaving.
The hunter was treated and released in Big Sky for puncture wounds and a laceration on his head.
FWP bear management specialist Kevin Frey says the hunter was not carrying bear spray
