(AP) Montana wildlife officials say a black bear wounded by a bow hunter bit the arm of the hunter's companion before succumbing to its injuries.


State Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks spokesman John Fraley says a man was hunting Tuesday near Thompson Falls when he shot the 150-pound female black bear with a bow and arrow.


The hunter waited for several hours to try to make sure the bear was dead before he started tracking it.


The hunter located the wounded bear and shot it twice more with his bow. The bear then ran down a hill and encountered a man who had arrived to assist the hunter. The bear bit the second man's arm before it died.


The injured man was treated at the hospital in Plains and released.


Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials say the hunter legally tagged the bear.
