Another incident involving a grizzly bear in the Island Park area was reported Thursday. Officials on the Caribou-Targhee National Forest report that two contract technicians collecting habitat information surprised a grizzly bear west of Island Park Reservoir about noon. Spokesman Gregg Losinski says the bear charged the two men and knocked them down –biting the first on the thigh and backside and then biting the second on his hands. One of the men was able to deploy his bear spray and escape the attack. Ultimately, the two injured men hiked out to their vehicle and drove to a rendezvous spot with an ambulance from Fremont County where they were provided initial treatment before continuing on to Madison Memorial Hospital in Rexburg. Officials say this was not the same bear that attacked a wildlife technician July 29th since that bear had been wearing a radio collar. Losinski says no area closures have been called for at the present time, but anyone venturing out is encouraged to carry bear spray and make noise as they move through the brush.
