Bear Attacks Girl

A bear attacks a 12-year-old girl in Wexford County. 

Abby Wetherell was walking on a trail in Haring Township, last Thursday, when a black bear appeared and attacked her. Wetherell is currently recovering at home after being released from the hospital yesterday. She suffered lacerations to her leg. According to the Department of Natural Resources, conservation officers shot and killed the bear Saturday evening after a report that a homeowner shot and wounded the bear on his property in Selma Township. Officers found the bear a few hours later and killed it. Testing will be done to determine if it's the same bear that attacked Wetherell.
