The BC Conservation Officer Service (COS) says a man has serious injuries after being attacked by what seemed like a grizzly bear north of Powell River.
The COS said a Quadra Island man was riding his bike along a remote logging road in the area of Ramsey Arm on Monday when the attack occurred.
The man had a knife on him and stabbed the bear, ending the attack.
The COS says he then rode his bike to a nearby camp where environmental workers performed first aid.

The COS says they are investigating the attack.
