WI: Hunter attacked by bear in Barron County

October 30, 2013

From WGOW.com

Barron County (WQOW) - Sometimes when you go hunting you come across animals you're not looking to hunt. A Barron County grouse hunter's encounter on Saturday put him and his dog in the hospital.
 
Phil Anderson was hunting ruffed grouse at the Loon Lake Wildlife Area when he heard branches cracking. He thought it was a deer but it turned out to be a black bear.
 
"I heard my dog squealing in distress and I kind of figured out what was happening," Anderson said.
 
Anderson's dog had encountered a mother bear and her cubs in Barron county.
 
"I yelled for the dog and immediately the adult bear came from that direction and charged at me and knocked me on my back," said Anderson "She batted me a few times and shook me and then she went back to my dog."
 
Anderson and his dog were able to walk three quarters of a mile to his truck. From there he was airlifted to Regions Hospital in the Twin Cities to have his wounds cleaned and closed.
 
"I have wounds on my arm from my elbow to my wrist where she bit me and I have scratches on my torso to my waist that had to be closed up," said Anderson.
