A man was attacked by a bear early Thursday at his home in the Midpines area of Mariposa County, authorities said.
The identity of the man or his physical condition was not released by the county's sheriff's office, which issued an "aggressive animal public safety" warning after the attack. People in the area should be alert about what's around them, and should keep an eye on children and pets, the sheriff's office said.
The attack happened about 4 a.m. in the 5000 block of Colorado Road. Wardens from the state Department of Fish and Wildlife were searching for the bear, the sheriff's office said.
