AK: Grizzly Attacks Hunter, Partner Shoots, Kills Bear, Stops Attack

A moose hunter has been left with serious injuries after being mauled by an adult female bear last Friday in the Eureka and Gunsight Mountain area of Alaska.

The attack, which was reported to state troopers at approximately 7 p.m., came to an end after the person's hunting partner shot the bear. Both hunters were able to make their way to nearby cabins and the victim was rushed to an Anchorage hospital by rescue helicopter.

As reported by KTVA, the Alaska State Troopers said: "Reportedly the two hunters surprised a sow brown bear with two cubs. The sow attacked one of the hunters causing serious injuries." The hunters have not yet been identified by law enforcement.
