An unidentified hiker was charged and bitten by a black bear Saturday as he was hiking along the Aspen Trail of the Caribout-Targhee National Forest south of Alta.  According to reports, the individual encountered the bear in an area of heavy cover and limited visibility. The bear charged and the individual attempted to climb a tree, but the bear was able to bite his foot and pull him to the ground, at which time the bear fled and wasn’t seen again.  Wyoming Game and Fish Spokesman Mark Gocke says wildlife managers do not plan to attempt to capture or take action against the bear, since it appeared to have been displaying normal bear behavior. However, Gocke says, rangers from the Caribou-Targhee National Forest have posted signs in the area warning of possible bear activity and urging the public to be bear-aware.
