Craig Lankford shot the bear after noticing that the giant creature was bothering the chickens he kept at his home in La Grande, a city of about 13 people.

When Lankford went out looking for the grizzly the next morning, he shot the creature a second time after confronting it near his Owsley Canyon Road property.

According to the sheriff's office, after that the bear attacked Lankford.

Police received notice of the attack after 07:30 a.m. and immediately closed nearby roads, as well as the nearby Mount Emily recreation area, hoping to contain the injured bear and avoid further attacks.

According to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW), injured bears can be especially dangerous.

ODFW is aware of at least three cases of wounded bears attacking hunters who shot them but did not kill them.

None of these attacks were fatal.

Although bear attacks are rare, they most often occur when the animal is injured, when it is being fed by humans and loses its natural caution, or when they are taken by surprise by humans or other animals.

Lankford suffered injuries to his hands and head, but they are not serious, he will recover. The man is currently being treated at a local hospital.

No fatal bear attacks have been recorded in Oregon.
