Man attacked by polar bear in Newfoundland in critical but stable condition

 An American lawyer who was attacked by a polar bear in Torngat Mountains National Park in northern Labrador remains in critical yet stable condition in a Montreal hospital, his wife said Saturday.
Matthew Dyer, of Maine, was on a tour of the park with a group from the Sierra Club when he was attacked by a polar bear at 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. He was initially brought by helicopter to a George River, Que., hospital before being transferred to Montreal for treatment of broken bones and bite wounds.
Dyer's wife, Jeanne Wells, said in a statement: "My husband is in critical but stable condition, he is a strong man and he is making improvements every day. My husband has received incredible care in Canada and at the Montreal General Hospital; I believe that's why he is still alive. Thank you to everyone for their concern."
