Bear attacks two sleeping B.C. men

From CBC News in British Columbia:

Two Nelson, B.C., men are recovering from wounds suffered in a grizzly bear attack earlier this week.

Jeff Hebert and Ken Scown were on a hunting trip in the near Canal Flats in the East Kootenay region, about 300 kilometres southwest of Calgary, when they say a grizzly attacked them early Wednesday morning as they slept in their tent.
