Mr. Ranger, Sir...

From The Associated Press -- Wildlife agents are looking for a bear who injured a camper on the Grand Mesa near Powderhorn Resort

''It wasn't that the bear attacked her,'' said Randy Hampton, spokesman for the Colorado Division of Wildlife. ''The bear came into her tent, and when she surprised him, he took a swipe at her.''

The woman, whose name was not released, yelled at the bear and it fled Saturday morning. Hampton said the woman required 12 stitches to her right thigh at St. Mary's Hospital. If caught, the bear will be killed.

''Bears that show aggression toward people are put down. That's the policy of the Division of Wildlife,'' Hampton said.
