Two people were injured in a bear attack in Waterton Lakes National Park on Tuesday.

Parks Canada officials say the two were “climbing up” Ruby Ridge from Crandall Lake when they encountered a bear around 2 p.m. Tuesday.

The bear attacked the party, injuring two people.

Bear spray was used, the bear disengaged, and the group was able to leave the area, according to a news release Wednesday. The hiker left the area and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital in stable condition.

In response to the bear attacks, Parks Canada has closed the following areas:

  • Crandall Lake Trail, all sections
  • Lyneham Trail
  • Crandall Lake Backcountry Campground
  • Former Crandall Mountain Camping Area
  • Canyon Church Campground
  • Neighboring backcountry areas, including Crandall Mountain and Ruby Ridge

Parks Canada said the bear has not been found and officials are investigating the matter.
