Wildlife officials are investigating a report of a bear attacking a woman outside her home. Authorities said the bear, apparently attracted by the smell of food cooking, lashed out at the 46-year-old woman as she opened her door to let her dog out at about 10 p.m. Saturday. The woman fell to the ground, while the dog attacked the bear in defense. WMUR-TV said the woman was taken to a hospital with cuts to her arms. The dog was unharmed. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is investigating.
