Bear Mauling Victim In Critical Condition

By | July 25, 2012

A 50-year-old Eagle River man is listed in critical condition Wednesday, three days after he was mauled by a bear. His injuries are more serious than first believed.

Bob Eder was taken to Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage following the Sunday attack about two miles from the Eagle River Nature Center.

Police at the time said he was transported with non-life-threatening injuries. His scalp and leg were clawed by the brown bear, which was thought to have three cubs with it. The animal ran off after the attack.
