Bear attack in Northern Alberta on the weekend

Two men are recovering after what appears to be a grizzly bear attack this weekend in Grande Cache.

iNews 880 is reporting that Dave Ealey, who speaks for Alberta Sustainable Resources, says two men were walking through the bush north of the town when they were attacked.


He says the victims believe it was a grizzly bear attack, even though Sustainable Resources staff have not confirmed that.

According to the website,, the two men got between a sow and her cubs. However, both men were able to get out of the bush to get medical treatment.

The two unidentified males suffered non-life threatening injuries.
