Brown Bear Roar

A black bear attacked a man jogging in the Panhandle National Forests in northern Idaho in the second bear attack at the popular recreation area in a month, but the bear ran away after the jogger kicked at it, officials said Wednesday.

The man suffered lower-leg lacerations in the Monday afternoon attack, but the injuries were not serious enough for him to need treatment at a hospital, Idaho Department of Fish and Game spokesman Phil Cooper said.

The unidentified man told officials he noticed the bear following him and turned to confront it and fell to the ground when the bear attacked.

“When the bear actually swiped at him, he kicked at it, and that’s when it ran off,” he said. “With a black bear, you definitely want to fight.”
