Bear Spray Failure in Alaska in August
Central Emergency Services Capt. Terry Bookey says the woman suffered bites and scratches to her head, back and arm. She was conscious and breathing when emergency personnel reached her and her injuries were not life-threatening.
"It sounds like she had some pretty significant injuries and will have a long road ahead of her," Bookey told the paper.
Bookey says the woman tried to use bear spray but found it did not help.
