A Pennsylvania man and woman are lucky to be alive after being attacked by a black bear inside their home Monday, according to television station WHTM.

According to the report, the bear chased the couple's dog inside the house before attacking the man. The man's wife jumped in to save him and the bear then went after her, eventually dragging her outside, before the man scared the bear off.

Both suffered injuries but were released from the hospital later in the day, the story says.
