The Hungry Horse news mentions a bear attack on the Cracker Lake trail in their yesterdays column:

"30 years ago
July 19, 1989
Two people were injured by a sow grizzly with cubs on the Cracker Lake Trail after they came around a blind corner and found themselves just 15 to 20 feet from the bear. They suffered several wounds, which weren’t life threatening."
