Bear Bites Hunter Near Shady Cove

NEAR SHADY COVE, Ore. – Two hunters are recovering after a bear they thought they’d killed near Shady Cove regained consciousness as it was being dragged out of the woods and bit one of the men.

Only one hunter was injured and at last report he was sitting up and talking as Mercy Flights crews prepared to transport him to Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center.

Due to the remote location of the hunters, it took search and rescue crews and Mercy Flights quite a while to track down the injured hunter in the midst of all the trees. The bear has now been confirmed dead.

      I feel more sorry for the bear. It was just out in the woods minding its own business when it was attacked without provocation.
