Police say a 64-year-old woman was attacked by a captive black bear while feeding two of the animals in the western Upper Peninsula.
Michigan State Police say the woman from Ewen was attacked Monday afternoon while feeding the bears in a large, fenced-in area on private property in Ontonagon County's McMillan
Township. Police say the woman, who was alone, drove a short distance home and called 911.
The woman was taken to an Ironwood hospital, and airlifted to Aspirus Wausau Hospital in Wisconsin. Police say she had severe injuries to her arms and abdominal area.
Police say the bear that attacked the woman escaped, and was killed after being found nearby.
A message seeking additional information was left early Tuesday with a state official handling information on the attack.
