MT: Bear badly mauls hunter in Montana

June 2, 2014

From News.Yahoo.com

(Reuters) - A man who was hunting for bears with his father in a remote corner of southwestern Montana was mauled by a bruin over the weekend.
The 47-year-old hunter, was attacked on Sunday in Beaverhead National Forest near Dillon, about 100 miles southeast of Missoula.
The man's 68-year-old father heard a rifle shot and hurried to the location to find his son severely injured, but the bear had by then vanished, said Andrea Jones, a spokeswoman for the state Fish, Wildlife and Parks Department.
It remained unknown whether the hunter mauled precipitated the attack by shooting at the bear, or whether he shot at the bruin only after it charged him, or whether the gun went off during the attack, state wildlife officials said.
