A worker at a western Pennsylvania resort was injured Saturday morning in a bear attack while guiding a safari tour of wildlife kept at the property, officials said.
Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Farmington, Pennsylvania, said the Himalayan bear reached through a wire fence, pulled the employee closer and bit her arm. The worker was in between two layers of fencing at the bear enclosure.
Other resort employees engaged with the bear and it released her arm. The employee was stabilized by a nurse and flown to a trauma center. The victim was described as “stable and alert.” The worker’s identity has not been disclosed. She has worked for the resort for a month.
