Bear attack reported near Golden at state park; one person injured

Colorado wildlife officials are investigating a report of a bear attack that injured a person Wednesday on a trail in Golden Gate Canyon State Park outside Golden.

Deputies with the Gilpin County Sheriff’s Office responded about 1:20 p.m. to the Coyote Trail in the park to a report of a bear attack, said Cherokee Black, the agency’s spokeswoman. The trailhead is near Colorado 46 and Mountain Base Road. She said a person was injured, but had few other details.

“I know they were injured, but I don’t know the extent of the injuries,” Black said.

The report came in about 1 p.m. Wednesday, Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesman Jason Clay said as he drove to the park about 14 miles northwest of Golden. He couldn’t immediately confirm what injuries occurred.
