Man Attacked by Bear Near Škofljica in central Slovenia

A 56-year-old man strolling in the woods near Škofljica, just south of Ljubljana, stumbled upon a bear, who attacked him, media have reported. The man reportedly surprised the animal and used his hands and a walking stick to defend himself, the Forests Institute told the STA. Police say the man’s injuries are not life-threatening.

The man was strolling in the woods between the villages of Klada and Želimlje on Tuesday evening when he stumbled upon the bear.

According to the Forests Institute, the man did nothing to provoke the attack but he obviously came too close to the animal.

The 56-year-old returned home in shock and with multiple wounds on the upper part of his body. His family immediately took him to the hospital, where it was determined that he had only sustained light injuries and had no bite wounds.

The site of the incident was thoroughly checked and is still being monitored by the local hunting association. Police too are investigating the incident.
