POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - A southeastern Idaho woman is recovering after being attacked by a black bear during a family hunting trip.

The Idaho State Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1P5JDMA) that Holly Owens suffered a bite on her leg during the attack on Sunday.

Owens’ husband, Joshua, had encountered a cub while tracking a deer he had shot. Holly Owens says she heard the mother bear galloping toward her as the couple and their three young children made their way back to their vehicle.

Owens beat the bear off with a stick and was treated and released from a hospital.

State biologists say they checked the area in Caribou County but determined the bear had left. They are monitoring the area.

Joshua Owens later returned and found the deer he had been tracking.
