BILLINGS - Bear attacks left two Montana hunters injured over the weekend in separate encounters.
The first incident occurred on Saturday when a man hunting near in the Cabin Creek area of Gallatin County was calling for elk. He received minor injuries from a bear assumed to be a grizzly, said a Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks news release.
The second attack was Sunday morning. A bear believed to be a female grizzly with two cubs mauled a man bow hunting elk on the north side of Tim Miner basin north of Gardiner, the release said.
Both hunters were treated at local hospitals and released.
