Three Bear Attacks in Three Months in Aspen

A bear has attacked a human in Aspen for the third time in three months, prompting wildlife officials to plead with people to keep garbage and other edibles secure from animals. 

Colorado Parks and Wildlife says a black bear bit a restaurant manger who was trying to scare the animal out of a trash bin.

The agency says the bear will be killed if it can be found because it has little fear of humans and could attack again.
