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.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
