Post Wiscosin Bear Hunter Attacked By Wounded Bear
Wisconsin DNR to investigate report of bear attack

HARDING, Wisconsin — The Lincoln County sheriff's office says a hunter was attacked by a bear in the Town of Harding.

According to the investigating deputy, 39-year-old Christopher Halfmann of De Pere was hunting with a group of friends Friday morning when he shot the bear. The bear then attacked Halfmann before running off.

His hunting companions brought Halfmann to a Merrill health center, and he was taken to the trauma center at St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay where he was in stable condition Friday night.

The sheriff's office says the group returned to the scene, found the injured bear and killed it. The bear will be tested for rabies, which is standard.

The investigation is being turned over to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
