LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) - A Longview man led state Fish and Wildlife officers back to the tree where he was attacked three weeks ago by a bear.

Wildlfie Officer Tyler Bahrenburg told The Daily News (https://bit.ly/Y1EsGh ) that Monday’s visit closed the investigation into the attack on Jerry Hause.

The location about eight miles west of Longview requires an hour-and-a-half hike, so the bear is no threat to the public.

The 60-year-old Hause was resting while bow hunting Sept. 1 when he was surprised by the bear.

He just had time to climb the tree. The bear bit him in a leg before he was able to kick it in the nose and drive it away.
