A bear that attacked a Virginia man in the George Washington National Forest in West Virginia has eluded attempts to capture it.
Fifty-nine year old Steven Krichbaum of Staunton and his dog encountered the female bear and her two cubs while walking in the forest in Hardy County, West Virginia. The bear attacked him after the dog went after the cubs. He hit the bear with a rock. He and the dog escaped, and he was treated for severe injuries at Winchester Memorial Hospital.
