Bear Tranquilized After Attacking Man And Dog

The dog saw a bear cub and took off after it Monday afternoon in Sierra Madre.  The mamma bear was close by and went after the dog.  That’s when officials say the dog’s owner kicked the bear, and the bear swung around to fight back.  The bear scratched the man’s right and left calf and bit him in the back of his right knee.  The man was taken to a hospital, the dog was taken to a vet and the bear was tranquilized at the scene.
