One of two rafters traveling along the Copper River suffered relatively minor injuries after being mauled Monday by a brown bear, according to state officials.

Ken Marsh, a spokesman for the state Department of Fish and Game, said the attack occurred during a rafting trip from McCarthy to Cordova, when the rafters surprised a sow brown bear.

Alaska State Troopers spokesman Tim DeSpain said the victim had been treated and released by Tuesday afternoon.
