Aspen (AP) - Liz McLain's 5-year-old dairy goat Touche tangled with a bear and has the claw marks to prove it.
McLain of Woody Creek near Aspen says there was a late-night ruckus at her home over the weekend and she discovered the next day that a bear had broken into a supposedly bear-proof tub that held feed for her horses.
A Sheriff's Deputy checked out the damage and that's when McLain realized her goat had been injured by the intruder.
The goat had scratches on her side, one of them about eight inches long. McLain says wildlife officials were amazed the goat survived.
Calls about bears are keeping wildlife officers busy in the Aspen area as the animals search for food.
