Response to May Accident Reports


A jogger was bitten by a bear in Glacier National Park's first reported bear-related injury of the year, officials said Tuesday.
A park statement said a man was running early Sunday when he came up on what he thought was a grizzly bear. Gary Smith told officials he fell. Smith said the bear bit his shoe, then left after Smith sprayed the animal.
Smith said he got away with a scratch and a puncture on his shin.
