Burnett County Man Mauled By Bear
A 63-year-old Burnett County man was apparently attacked by a bear on Monday night. The man, now identified as Jerry Brown, was airlifted to North Memorial Hospital in the Twin Cities with serious injuries.
The Inter-County leader reports the black bear attacked Brown after his dog initiated contact with the animal.
The Department of Natural Resources was said to be investigating the attack but has offered no additional details at this time.
Brown’s brother was said to have shot the bear at close range and authorities were searching for the bear on Tuesday.
