WI:Man Shoots Bear, stops Attack on Brother

It appears to me that the dog was doing what it is supposed to do, defend its territory. Bears have to be continually reminded that people are dangerous predators at the top of the food chain. When they lose their fear of men and dogs, this is the sort of incident that takes place.

SHELL LAKE, Wis. (KMSP) - A man is recovering at a Twin Cities hospital after he was attacked by a black bear Monday night near Shell Lake in northwestern Wisconsin.

According to the Wisconsin DNR, the bear attack was provoked by the man's dog.

The victim's brother, who was inside the family's cabin, stepped out and shot the bear. The bear was injured, but ran away.

The victim was taken to the hospital in Shell Lake before he was airlifted to the Twin Cities, where he is in stable condition.
