A bear attacked and injured two elk hunters in northern Sweden on Sunday, police said, in the same region where a hunter was killed last week.

The two hunters were accompanied by their dogs and tracking an elk when a bear attacked in the Jämtland region north west of the capital Stockholm.

The men were helicoptered to hospital but their condition is not yet known, according to a police spokesman.

Police were looking for the bear, he added.

It is the second bear attack in a week. The previous attack was fatal, with the hunter dying of his injuries. The bear in that case was later put down.
