WY: Grizzly attacks hunter

September 14, 2013

From JHNewsAndGuide.com

A grizzly bear mauled a hunter from Lafayette, Ind., on Thursday in the Teton Wilderness.
 
David Goodrich, 50, suffered a broken femur and puncture wounds to the abdomen in the attack, said Teton County Undersheriff Bob Gilliam.
 
Goodrich and his guide were hunting in the Wolverine Creek area when a grizzly came out of the brush onto the trail.
 
One or both of the men started running, and the bear gave chase, catching Goodrich, who broke his leg trying to escape. The abdominal punctures were attributed to bear bites.
 
As the bear attacked Goodrich, the guide shot at it four times, causing it to run away. The bear was gone by the time rescuers arrived.
