Bear attacks porcupine hunter in Clare County
Clare — A man hunting for porcupine was attacked by a black bear in Clare County.
The Department of Natural Resources says the 46-year-old was treated for minor injuries Thursday night. The hunter told authorities that the bear knocked him over from behind.
The bear dashed after the hunter stabbed it with a knife. The attack occurred in Clare County’s Greenwood Township, 110 miles north of Lansing.
The DNR has set a trap to catch the injured bear.
Michigan has as many as 10,000 black bears, with 90 percent of them in the Upper Peninsula.
