A black bear attacked a hunter, causing severe injuries, before being shot and killed by another hunter in the area. The events took place just outside Olympic National Park.
The victim suffered a compound fracture in his arm, a broken hand and bite marks. Though he lost a significant amount of blood, he is expected to make a full recovery.
According to local state troopers, this is a rare attack for this area. Most wildlife encounters involve cougars, not bears.
