LJUBLJANA, Slovenia — A hunter in Slovenia has been slightly injured when a bear attacked him in a forest in the Alpine nation's southwest region.
Tuesday's attack is the second this year in Slovenia, where a heated debate is going on over a government order to cull dozens of bears and wolves amid warnings they have exceeded the numbers suitable for the nation of 2 million.
Police say the 67-year-old hunter was resting under a tree when the female bear with a cub approached, scratching him on the leg, head and elsewhere. The hunter then yelled and chased the bear away.
