On May 9/99 a man was killed by a bear in Hokkaido in Japan last week. Two others were seriously injured. It was the first fatal bear attack in Japan in 9 years.

The attacks happened in Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost Island.

The man was collecting wild plants when he was fatally attacked. When he did not return his family sent a search party out for him and found him dead. A short time later two women were out in the forest and presumably the same bear attacked them. They were not killed and are listed in serious condition in the hospital.

Any animal is most dangerous when it loses it's fear of people. This bear was tracked down and killed.
