A grizzly bear mauled and seriously injured a man in Alberta on Saturday. The man was hiking in the bush northeast of Cadomin early in the morning when he was attacked. They said he had not spotted the bear and did not realize it was nearby. Cadomin is on the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains, southwest of Edmonton.

Police said in a news release that the man was taken to hospital in Hinton, Alta., in serious but stable condition with numerous cuts to his right leg. Alberta wildlife officials are investigating.

Earlier this month, a woman in Coquitlam, B.C., suffered serious injuries in a black bear attack while she was gardening in her front yard. The bear was later shot by police. A black bear was also put down after it broke into a house in North Vancouver.
