SANTA FE, NM (FOX19) - A 14 year old Symmes Township Boy Scout was attacked by a bear while he was camping in New Mexico.

Aaron Myers was attacked by a 150 pound black bear while he was in his tent at the Philmont Scout Ranch early Wednesday morning.

The bear bit Myers hand and head, but he was released from the hospital after only a couple of hours and rejoined his troop at camp.
