Woman attacked by bear in Nevada may face charges

A Lake Tahoe woman who was attacked by a black bear in her backyard could become the first person in the area charged with illegally feeding the wild animals.

California wildlife officials say the woman has been feeding bears for years in her yard on the lake's north shore at Kings Beach.

Lt. Patrick Foy says the woman was treated for bite wounds to her shoulder after she reported the attack on Aug. 5. He says Placer County prosecutors will decide whether to cite her with a misdemeanor for feeding wildlife, punishable by up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

A similar problem in nearby Incline Village prompted the Nevada Department of Wildlife to issue a formal warning in December to another woman accused of illegally feeding bears.
