Bear bites bow hunter near Longview

The Associated Press

LONGVIEW — A bow-hunter was attacked by a bear while looking for deer near Longview.

The 61-year-old Longview man, Jerry Hause, told The Daily News he sat down to take a rest Monday when the bear came at him at a dead run.

Hause says he didn’t have time to use his bow so he scrambled up a tree. The bear followed him and bit his left leg. It finally let go when Hause kicked it in the nose with his other foot.

Hause was able to walk out and call for help. He was treated for puncture wounds and claw scratches at PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center and is recovering at home.

The next time Hause goes bow hunting, he said he plans to carry a pistol.
