ALBUQUERQUE, NM(KRQE)– Game and Fish officials are searching for a bear that attacked a woman Saturday.
Officials say the attack happened in the Valles Caldera National Preserve near Los Alamos. The woman was participating in a marathon event when she came across a mother bear whose cub ran up a tree, officials say.
The woman was airlifted to an Albuquerque hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Officials say, initial reports of her injuries indicate that she was bit and scratched – receiving injuries to her head, neck and upper body.
Officials say they are working the National Park Service to deter people from entering the area. Once the bear is found it will be euthanized and tested for rabies.
