By Dave Hurteau
From the Desert News:
A 78-year-old man was hospitalized Friday with injuries he received when he was attacked by a black bear in a remote area of eastern Utah. . . .
One of the victim's daughters jumped on the bear and hit it with her fists, according to a
statement from the DWR. After another family member joined in the struggle the bear let go of the man at which point the bear was shot in the back by one of the victim's grandsons. The animal ran off and was found dead after sunrise.
