The Taylor County Sheriff’s Office said the attack took place around 11pm on Friday at a home near Medford in north-central Wisconsin. The couple told authorities that the bear went through a window after being called to leave.
Both the husband and the wife were injured before they managed to stab the bear with a kitchen knife. Eventually, the man managed to grab a gun and kill the animal.
The man and woman were hospitalized for multiple bites and other injuries before being released. The couple’s children were sleeping in their bedroom at the time and were not injured.
The sheriff’s office said the bear was an adult female and a small one was seen running as the bear ran towards the house. Wildlife government officials took the bear for a test. Authorities did not specify what kind of bear it was.
