DUBOIS, Wyo. (AP) - A grizzly bear attacked a man looking for antlers in western Wyoming.

The unidentified man was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after Saturday's attack in a remote area east of Dubois, according to the Wyoming Game and Fish Department.

The bear was killed in the encounter. The department did not provide details about how the bear died.

The attack happened when the man accidentally surprised a female grizzly with a yearling cub, the Casper Star-Tribune reports.

Grizzlies have attacked at least three others in the western U.S. this spring.

A boater suffered non-life-threatening injuries after he surprised a grizzly with a cub Sunday near Montana's Sun River. Grizzlies also have injured people outside Cody and Dupuyer, Montana.
