Woman Doing Okay After Being Attacked By Black Bear

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA FALLS -

FWP keeps a close eye on a trap for a Black bear.

The alleged attack happened late Thursday morning on Forest Service land in the Cedar Flats area north of Columbia Falls. A woman was running with her dogs when a bear apparently went after her dogs, and then her.

Officials have closed the area and they're trying to capture the bear.

FWP says the woman got some bite and claw marks, but was treated at North Valley Hospital and is doing okay as of Friday.

"If we can possibly identify the bear that attacked, caused a human injury, we'll remove the bear, usually euthanize the bear if we can catch it," explained John Fraley, a spokesman for FWP.

The woman's name hasn't been released and there's no word yet on how the dogs are doing.
