State wildlife officials say a man was scratched through his sleeping bag by a bear at a camping area in north-central Arizona.
They say the bear was investigating the man's camp early Wednesday and pawed at the sleeping bag near Cherry Creek in Young, Arizona.
Bear spray was used and the animal retreated.
Arizona Game and Fish Department officials say the man in his 20s was treated at a hospital and released. His name wasn't immediately released.
They believe the bear was small and possibly young.
