Bear vic­tim will need ex­ten­sive re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND -

A Western Mary­land wo­man who was re­cently at­tacked by a black bear has more se­ri­ous in­juries than ini­tially thought. Sixty-three-yearold Karen Os­borne was mauled Wed­nes­day night in the drive­way of her daugh­ter’s home near Frederick. WTOP-FM re­ported that Os­born has a frac­tured pelvic bone, along with sev- eral other in­juries, ac­cord­ing to her hus­band. She might have to re­main hos­pi­tal­ized for sev­eral more weeks and will need ex­ten­sive re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion. Os­born sur­vived the at­tack by punch­ing the bear, and when that didn’t work, she played dead. The bear was later eu­th­a­nized. It was the first recorded bear at­tack in Mary­land in 81 years.
