Ontonagon Co. MI (Northland's NewsCenter) A Michigan woman is recovering after being mauled by a 400 pound captive black bear.
Linda beck said she was feeding the bear inside its enclosure when the animal attacked.
The bear, named daisy, belongs to a neighbor.
The woman says she was finally able to incapacitate the animal by putting a water bucket over its head.
Injured on her arms and torso, beck drove herself to a nearby home following the July 18th attack.
Beck says she's fed the bears for years without problem and doesn't place any blame.
Daisy escaped and was killed by a state trooper.
