This article should be of interest to Jeff Bridges fans.

A woman was mauled by a grizzly bear on a private ranch in the Tom Miner area north of Gardiner early Saturday, according to the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Park.

The female victim, who is from the Gardiner area, and two companions were near the carcass of a domestic cow when the incident occurred, the news release said.

When the bear made contact, the victim laid on her stomach to protect her vital organs. She was bitten on her legs and back.

 

Her companions used bear spray to scare off the bear and stop the attack.

The victim is being treated for her injuries.

This is the second mauling in southwest Montana in a little over a week. On Monday, Sept. 5, an archery hunter was mauled by a grizzly in the south end of the Gravelly Range.

 

While these incidents were relatively far from each other, both involved bears feeding on carcasses. In both cases, bear spray played an important role, according to FWP.

"These events should serve as a stark reminder that Montana is bear country. Hunters and others working and playing in bear country should be especially alert for grizzlies, carry bear spray, and know how to use it,'' the release said.

Gardiner is located at the northern border of Yellowstone National Park.

Pinkie you are a sweet lady to worry about me but I don't go into the forest.  Forests are lovely, dark and deep but they scare the crap out of me.  

No - the place is interesting because it's near where JB has a home - in Paradise Valley, MT.
It must have been very near his place.

No.  You shouldn't worry about anyone where there are grizzlies.  I just thought it was interesting. 

If you don't go into the forest - you will not run into grizzlies.  Or wolves.
My motto is stay out of the forest.  Remember Little Red riding Hood?  Uh-huh.
