Bear Attack Victim Waiting For Bear to Be Caught

Posted: Updated:

Abby Wetherell's doctors say it will be about five weeks until she's off crutches and a full six months before her leg has fully healed.

The DNR tested one bear killed in the area and determined it was not the one that attacked Abby.

A female bear attacked Abby while she was jogging on her parent's property near Pine Knoll Avenue and Haring Road in Haring Township in Wexford County.

The DNR will leave the traps up until Friday and then take them down and hope the attacking bear is harvested in the coming bear season.

9&10 News' Eric Lloyd spoke to Abby and her mother and has more details.
