A Minnesota man managed to kill a 525-pound black bear with a knife after the injured bear attacked a group of hunters early Saturday morning.
KARE11.com reported that the group, which hunts every weekend from September to December, hit the bear with a bow and arrow earlier in the evening. But the bear was not fatally wounded. The hunters, considering the ethics and the meat, decided to track the bear, using its trail of blood as a guide.
They found the bear on the ground and assumed it was dead. But the bear, still bleeding from its wound, managed to charge at one of the hunters and mauled him.
“All of a sudden I heard him screaming,” Craig Lindstrom, one of the hunters, told the news station. “Literally screaming, screaming and you knew he was being mauled.”
