Texas moose hunter mauled by bear near Skilak Lake.

Alaska State Troopers said in a Wednesday dispatch that the mauling of 47-year-old Plano resident Gregory Joseph Matthews was first reported at about 6:15 p.m.

The attack occurred near Doroshin Bay, at the north end of Skilak Lake in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. “It was reported that (Matthews) was attacked by a brown bear with cubs while moose hunting,” troopers wrote. “Matthews suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries.” The U.S. High, 62, was flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with serious injuries, but state officials ultimately decided not to seek out the bear that mauled him.
