Wyoming Hunter in Good Condition Following Bear Attack

MOOSE, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities say a hunter who was attacked by a bear while hunting in Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park is in good condition.

Park officials say 32-year-old Timothy Hix, of Jackson, was expected to be released from the hospital later Monday.

Hix told rangers that he surprised what he believed was a grizzly bear on Sunday in an area between Blacktail Ponds and Glacier View overlooks.

He says the bear ran toward him and, after he wasn’t able to grab his pepper spray, he dropped to the ground and covered his head. Hix says the bear bit him at least twice before running away.
