DOW officers are attempting to capture a black bear that attacked a woman in her Aspen condo early this morning.
The woman was awakened by noises in her kitchen about 1:30 a.m. When she walked in, the bear smacked her in the face. She was taken to Aspen Valley Hospital with claw injuries that are not considered life-threatening.
Police said the bear entered the house through a closed but unlocked sliding glass door. It fled the home after the attack.
