A MAN and woman killed a bear that broke into their home while their children were sleeping.
They were both injured after fighting off the bear when it attacked them on Friday night.
On one occasion, they were able to stab the bear with a kitchen knife before the husband could retrieve a gun, WSAW reports.
Then he shot the bear and killed it.
The bear got into the house after charging through a window.
The couple told police they saw the bear eating from a bird feeder outside their Wisconsin home and yelled at it to try to scare it away.
Both were bitten multiple times and sustained multiple injuries. After inpatient treatment, they were able to go home.
The couple’s children were sleeping during the fiasco.
Earlier this year, Staff Sgt Seth Michael Plant, 30, died at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage while another Soldier sustained minor injuries in the attack.
Originally from Saint Augustine, Fla., Plant had been on the base since July 2021, the Army said in a statement. He was an infantryman with the 3rd Battalion, 509th Parachute Infantry Regiment.
Lt Col David Ja Nelson, 3rd Battalion, commander of the 509th Parachute Infantry Regiment said Plant “always had a smile on his face, he always went above and beyond what was asked of him and he served as a An inspiration to all who have had the privilege of knowing him.”
A den containing two brown bear cubs was found near the site of the attack, according to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
In a statement, the department said a brown bear approached the area during the investigation. The officers used bear spray, causing the beast to run away.
Hair collected during the investigation into the attack matched a brown bear, according to the department.
The bear attack happened in a remote part of the military base in a training area west of the Anchorage landfill, according to the army.
