Woman, 72, mauled by black bear in northern Minnesota

Outdoors officials say a woman in northern Minnesota was injured this week in an attack by a black bear.

The Department of Natural Resources says the 72-year-old woman suffered "serious but not-life threatening injuries" in the attack Monday night in McGregor in Aitkin County. The DNR says the woman was bitten and clawed by a female bear before the bear and her three yearlings left the property.

The DNR says the bear and her cubs had been seen on the property before.

The DNR says a conservation officer killed the bear after it ran toward him.

The DNR says it's the fifth documented bear attack on a person that resulted in injuries since 1987.
