BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - Authorities say a hunter from Billings was knocked down by a bear in the Gravelly Range in Madison County in southwestern Montana but not seriously injured.

Sgt. Joe Knarr of Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks tells the Montana Standard (http://bit.ly/vjavvd) that the man was run over by the bear on Friday but did not appear to have been bitten or clawed.

He says it's unclear what type of bear was involved.

The man was taken to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls, Idaho, shortly after the encounter. A hospital spokesman on Saturday says the man was treated and released. He declined to describe what injuries the man sustained.

The hunter's name has not been released.

Knarr says it's unlikely any action will be taken involving the bear.
