According to the story, the bear was found a short distance from the house and killed. The man was taken to a local hospital and treated for three cuts to his head. Authorities have no idea why the bear attacked the man, but interestingly, the story says bears are sometimes attracted to hot tub covers because they apparently smell like ant dens? Weird. So I guess the moral of the story is, when you soak in a hot tub in bear country, it might be a good idea to invest in a...hot tub bear gun?
