Wyoming man attacked by grizzly bear recovering in Denver hospital

A 65-year-old Park County man is still in a Denver hospital after being seriously injured by a sow grizzly bear last week.

Family and friends of Nic Patrick say he faces a long recovery after suffering face, back, leg and arm injuries in the June 20 attack about 20 miles southwest of Cody. He is being treated at the University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora.

Wyoming Game and Fish Department officials say Patrick was irrigating at around 6:30 a.m. when the bear went after the dog, then attacked Patrick. The dog also survived.

Game and Fish couldn't find the bear and have stopped the search.

Wildlife supervisor Alan Osterland tells the Powell Tribune that the bear has moved into a remote area.
