    A bear escaped the Grand River Fur Exchange in Hartsgrove, Ohio, Monday, and attacked a woman.

    Giant bear attacks woman (1:59)

    ORWELL, Ohio (AP) -- A 500-pound bear escaped from an animal breeder Monday, entered a neighboring home and attacked a woman, a state wildlife officer said.

    The victim was expected to survive, and the bear was lured out of the house and shot to death by the breeder, said Reno Reda of the state Department of Natural Resources wildlife division.

    The owner of Grand River Fur Exchange, Mark Gutman, was attempting to enter the bear's cage to clean it when the animal escaped, Reda said.

    The bear walked into a neighbor's garage, Reda said. A 15-year-old girl saw the animal and fled into the house, but the bear pushed the door open behind her and followed her inside, Reda said. (Watch where the bear left a bloodstained wall -- 2:00)

    The girl's mother, Rachel Supplee, 36, was attacked in a nearby room, Reda said.

    She was in satisfactory condition Monday night at St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown, Reda said, but details on the injuries to several parts of her body weren't available.

    The bear was shot about 20 minutes after it escaped. Gutman immediately called authorities, as required, when the bear broke loose, Reda said.

    The bear was about 9 years old and raised in captivity, making it unafraid of people, Reda said.

    Gutman is licensed for commercial game propagation, which allows him to breed animals and sell the offspring, Reda said. His business is in Hartsgrove Township, 50 miles east of Cleveland.

    No charges had been filed and the Ashtabula County Sheriff's Office was reviewing the matter, Reda said. The sheriff's office didn't return a phone message Monday night.

    well, considering that it was raised in a fur factory, it was probably treated badly. i wish it attacked and killed the breeder. anyway, if we keep raising bears like this, this kinda thing should be expected so i have no sympathy.

    I dunno if this is a great reason to own a gun. It's sure a great reason why bears and humans don't mix though.

    What's the differance between raising a bear and raising a cow? If it's possible to raise it in captivity then I say go for it.

    it would be quite the quandry to see a bear run across the range knowing that they are not indigenous to the area, knowing that it possibly escaped and is a danger to the public, but not wanting to be charged with hunting without a license.
