State Sets Trap To Catch Bear That Attacked Hunter 10-13-2010

BEAR CREEK TOWNSHIP, Mich.Officials seeking to euthanize a mother black bear that mauled a bow hunter in a tree stand along with her three cubs in the northern Lower Peninsula have set up trail cameras and collected hair samples aimed at catching the animal.
Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment spokesman Bob Gwizdz told the Petoskey News-Review a culvert trap was set Tuesday evening.
The bears attacked 21-year-old Chad Fortune Saturday in Emmett County's Bear Creek Township, near Petoskey.
The Walloon Lake resident said he punched, kicked and screamed at the bears as they tried to reach the tree stand, about 15 feet off the ground.
Fortune was rescued two hours later and received 40 stitches in his leg.
Officials said the mother bear is dangerous because she's lost her fear of humans.
