CA: California Man Loses Leg After Shooting Self During Bear Attack

December 28, 2012

By Gayne C. Young, OutdoorLife.com

An unidentified California hunter lost his leg Saturday.
 
The man was bear hunting with friends when the group treed a black bear.

When someone shot at the bear, it dropped from the branches above and charged the man. He drew his .44 handgun a little too erratically and blew a hole through his leg somewhere below his knee. Another hunter shot the bear and killed it.  Doctors tried to save his leg but were forced to amputate.
