    NEWPORT, Pa. (AP) — Officials say a bear attacked a couple inside their central Pennsylvania home, sending both people to a hospital.

    Pennsylvania Game Commission spokesman Jerry Feaser says the attack happened Monday morning in Oliver Township. He says the couple's dog was outside and ran into the home, followed by the bear.

    Feaser says the man inside the home was scratched and bitten and a woman was attacked as she tried to chase the animal away.

    Emergency dispatchers say both were taken to Harrisburg Hospital with unspecified injuries.

    State police in Newport directed inquiries to the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

    Oliver Township is near Newport in largely rural Perry County, about 20 miles northwest of Harrisburg.

    I'll bet the happy couple located that bear outside of their castle, got into a pissing contest with the furry critter and then realized that they erred and ran for the house, followed closely by our hairy friend...

    Bad things happen to stupid people!!

    The bear was probably upset that Perry County has a red light, now.

    We had to stop feeding the birds for a while this spring here in Ocqueoc MI. We had a bear that would tear them down at night. these are feeders that are up 8 ft or so on a bear-proof post. We decided to let that big one move on.Bill
