The Post-Star says the man was riding a four-wheeler when he saw a bear. He says he turned around to go back toward it and that's when he says the bear charged and attacked him. He was knocked to the ground and crawled home.

The Post-Star reports he ended up getting 16 stitches and numerous staples.   

The Department of Environmental Conservation is now looking into what exactly happened.
