Parks and Wildlife seeking bear involved in Fort Collins area attack
June 6, 2018
FORT COLLINS — At 11 p.m. on Tuesday, June 5, Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the Larimer County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a bear attack in the Red Feather Lakes area of Northern Larimer County.
Area Wildlife Manager Ty Petersburg said the attack involved a family of four who were tent-camping in a dispersed camping area off County Road 67J (Prairie Divide Road) on U.S. Forest Service property and was likely food-attractant related. The bear trampled the tent, and an adult male was transported to the hospital with injuries that are believed to be non-life threatening.
CPW is still trying to locate the bear, has set traps in the area and is actively using all available means to locate and remove the bear immediately.
