ASPEN, Colo. - Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers are looking for an "aggressive bear" that bit a woman on the thigh as she and her husband hiked on the Hunter Creek Trail near Lone Pine Road in Aspen at approximately 9:15 Monday morning. The woman reported that she and her husband were walking back to Aspen when they saw a bear walking toward them on the trail.
