Bedford Co. Hunter Bitten by Bear


Bedford Co., VA - A Bedford County man ended up with stitches after Conservation Police said he was bitten by a bear.

The Department of Game and Inland fisheries said Dwayne Karnes, 32, was hunting with dogs Saturday afternoon in the Suck Mountain area of Bedford County.

An officer said the dogs ran onto private property and got into a fight with a bear, that looked to weigh about 125 pounds.

Conservation Police said when Karnes tried to pull the dogs off, he slid feet first into the bear, and the bear bit both of the man's arms.

Karnes was treated at Bedford Memorial Hospital and released. The bear ran off.
