A man is recovering after being attacked by a grizzly bear in a remote area of B.C. Sunday afternoon.

The man and his wife were out mountain biking near Spruce Lake north of the small community of Gold Bridge, about two hours northwest of Lillooet.

The grizzly was with her cubs, and it’s believed she acted defensively when she attacked the man and bit his groin.

The man’s wife sprayed the sow with bear spray, and the animal let go.
