Alaska woman attacked by bear while using toilet

An Alaska woman was given the fright of her life while visiting an outdoor toilet in the wilderness as she was attacked by a bear - from below.

"I got out there and sat down on the toilet and immediately something bit my butt right as I sat down," Shannon Stevens told The Associated Press. 

"I jumped up and I screamed when it happened."

Once back inside her tent, Shannon dealt with the injury using a first aid kit. 

"It was bleeding, but it wasn't super bad," Shannon said.

Alaska Department of Fish and Game Wildlife Management Biologist Carl Koch suspects it was a black bear based upon photos of the tracks he saw.
