State Forest Rangers are warning hikers in the Adirondacks about aggressive black bears.
This, after a woman says she stabbed one of the animals.
The woman tells the Adirondack Daily Enterprise, she was hiking on the Northville-Placid trail in Hamilton County when three bears started following her.
When one got too close, she stabbed it with a knife.
DEC officials say there have been several recent encounters with nuisance bears along that stretch of trail.
