CA: Local Man Loses Leg After Bear Charges

December 11, 2012

From fox40.com

A local man lost part of his leg during a hunting excursion with friends on Saturday in El Dorado County.
 
The men were hunting for black bear when they came across one and chased it up a tree.
 
One hunter fired a shot at the bear, and it came down, charging at one of the men.
 
That man grabbed his .44-caliber handgun to shoot it, but instead shot himself in the leg.
 
Doctors had to amputate his leg from the knee down.
