Pennsylvania woman attacked by bear, saved by dog named 'Bear'

Game wardens say a bear attacked a woman outside her home in Pennsylvania and dragged her more than 80 yards before being rescued by her dog.

The attack happened Wednesday in Muncy Creek Township, which is located about 16 miles (25 kilometers) east of Williamsport.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission says the woman was outside with her dog when the bear attacked.

Game Warden Supervisor Mike Steingraber says the woman was able to free herself and call for help.

FOX 56 reports that the woman has been hospitalized in critical condition and suffered a broken collarbone, hip, leg and jaw.

The victim's family and friends are crediting her dog, whos name is 'Bear,' with saving her life. The dog as also injured.

It is unclear why the bear attacked.

Steingraber says it may have been attracted to deer parts from a recent hunting trip that were left near the home.

There's a GoFundMe page set up to help cover her medical expenses.

Game wardens are now searching for the bear, and multiple bear traps have been set up.

The bear will be euthanized.
