From the Appeal Democrat:

_A . . . bear turned the tables Monday on an 83-year-old hunting party member in the Tahoe National Forest near Camptonville, severely mauling the man’s arm and shoulder, authorities said. . . .

_The victim, Orval Sanders . . . and six other men were hunting with dogs near Alleghany in Sierra County when they treed three bears. One of three bears came down from the tree after being shot and attacked Sanders. . . .

Another member of the party shot the bear in the head, killing it, he said.
