Bear chases bow hunter up a tree and bites his leg

Posted: Updated:
LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) - A bow-hunter was attacked by a bear while looking for deer near the southwest Washington city of Longview.

The 61-year-old Longview man, Jerry Hause says he was sitting down to take a rest Monday when the bear came at him at a dead run.

Hause says he didn't have time to use his bow so he scrambled up a tree. The bear followed him and bit his left leg. It finally let go when Hause kicked it in the nose with his other foot.

Hause was able to walk out and call for help. He was treated for puncture wounds and claw scratches at a hospital and is recovering at home.

Hause says the next time he goes bow hunting, he plans to carry a pistol.

    Man accused of assault after putting wife with dementia on leash

    Tuesday, September 18 2018 10:40 AM EDT2018-09-18 14:40:20 GMT

    A Maryland man is facing a simple assault charge after using a dog leash to lead his wife around a Pennsylvania fair because she has late-stage dementia.    West Manchester police say Walter Wolford yanked the 8-inch long red nylon leash, causing his wife's head to jerk back and leave red marks around her throat. But the 66-year-old Hagerstown man says he only gently tugged on the leash, which he uses to keep his wife from getting lost.

    Idaho judge: Lethal injection drug source is secret for now

    BOISE, Idaho (AP) - An Idaho judge now says state prison officials can hold off on identifying where they obtain the drugs used in executions until a trial is held on the matter. Fourth District Judge Lynn Norton ruled in May that the state had to turn over nearly all of its execution records, including those identifying the source of the execution drugs, to a University of Idaho professor who sued for access to the documents under the Idaho Public Records Act.

    SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The rare closure of most of the Columbia River to salmon fishing is largely the result of bad weather and bad ocean conditions in 2015. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife on Thursday closed salmon fishing on the main stem of the Columbia River from Buoy 10 upstream to Highway 395 in Pasco.
