Man attacked by bear loses eye

The brother of a man attacked by a black bear in northwestern Wisconsin says he has a long road to recovery.

   
Bob Brown says his brother, Jerry, lost his left eye when the bear attacked outside a cabin near Shell Lake Monday night. Bob Brown said his brother's face was crushed and that surgeons have already done some surgery to repair the damage. He says the bear also bit his brother's arm.
   
The 63-year-old patient is recovering at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale, Minn. A hospital spokeswoman says Brown is in stable condition Thursday.
   
Jerry and Bob Brown's brother, Randy, shot at the bear as it attacked and it ran away.
