Superior, MN (WDAY TV) -- A man is hospitalized with injuries after a bear attacks him near Superior Minnesota Saturday night.

The man was hunting deer and set up over bait. The bear wandered near that bait, so the victim tried to chase it away.

The bear, weighing about 200 pounds, turned on him. The man injured the animal with a knife and his hunting partner shot it with an arrow. He has visible puncture wounds and injuries to his thigh and wrist.

His name and condition haven't been released. Authorities killed the beer an hour later.
