Former U.S. ski team member attacked by bear | Off the Bench:
"The bear chased her down from behind, slashing her chest and left arm with its claws when Haas turned around. No one on the trail heard her screams."
Yet another black bear attack. I don't for a minute believe the woman's punch "forced" the bear onto all fours. Bears are far stronger and tougher than people. But it probably did help discourage the bear.
