PINETOP, AZ - A Gilbert woman mauled by a bear has undergone six surgeries over seven days. The husband of 61-year-old Lana Hollingworth says her scalp was ripped off either by the bear's claws or its teeth.
Hollingsworth was out walking her dog the night of June 28 in the Pinetop Country Club when she was attacked. Wildlife experts think the bear was rummaging through garbage looking for food.
A Game and Fish spokeswoman tells The Arizona Republic that four bears have been relocated from the Pinetop area in the past week and another bear was killed after it broke into a trailer.
The attack on Hollingsworth marked the seventh bear attack in Arizona since state officials began tracking them in 1990.
