Minnesota Woman Hurt in Bear Attack
Sunday, July 31, 2005

CARLTON, Minn. A woman was severely injured when she was attacked by a black bear while walking in woods in northeast Minnesota (search), officials said.

Mary Lou Munn (search), 50, managed to call authorities after the attack but was found lying in her front yard with several severe cuts to her leg, back, stomach and shoulders, authorities said.

She was reported in good condition Saturday after surgery at St. Mary's Hospital (search) in Duluth.

Munn told sheriff's deputies she was walking in the woods by a nearby beaver pond when the attack occurred.

She said she fought the bear with a small stick and her fists and her dog tried to help, but the bear chased the dog off and continued attacking her, authorities said.

After the bear left her alone, she walked a quarter mile back to her home and called police, sheriff's officials said.

I guess that is another good reason to be armed. Even with a poodle shooter round like the 9mm, she would have likely had a betetr chance of not being mauled than she did with just a stick and her fists. Got to hand it to her though, one heck of a feisty lady but, maybe time to get a new dog and a gun.

All the best,
