MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A Morgantown area woman is recovering after being attacked by a black bear.

Kelly Dale tells The Dominion Post (https://bit.ly/1nR7srd ) that she walked into a dangerous situation Wednesday night, when she found herself between a mother bear and its cub. The enraged bear swatted at her head and straddled her after knocking her down.

The attack lasted only about five seconds but left Dale with a lacerated scalp, bruised ribs and a sprained ankle.

Dale says that as a mother herself, she really can’t blame the bear. In her words: “She was just doing what she was supposed to do.”
