DURANGO, Colo. -

Wildlife officials say a woman is recovering after a black bear bit her arm while she was sleeping in a tent south of Pagosa Springs. 

There are reports the woman was camping on a private land when she was bitten at around 2 a.m. Friday (8/16/13).

Wildlife officials say the woman, whose name has not been released, must have pulled her arm away or made a sound because the bear retreated immediately.

She was treated at a hospital and released.

Trackers have not found the bear that attacked her.
