A couple from Oliver, Pennsylvania was attacked by a black bear this morning after the bear chased a dog into their home.

According to, the couple’s dog was outside in the yard and was chased inside by a bear. The man inside the home was scratched and bitten and a woman was also attacked and injured. Both were taken to a hospital in Harrisburg with unspecified injuries.

This is just one of many bear attacks over the last few months. In fact, in the West, grizzly bear attacks have made headlines all summer long and last month a Wisconsin hunter was mauled by a black bear. As hunting season ramps up, bear safety should be on all of our minds.
