SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A hiker has been injured by a mountain lion at Big Bend National Park.

The National Park Service says a woman and her friends were hiking in a remote area when the attack happened Friday.

Authorities say part of the park has been closed so that rangers can look for the mountain lion and investigate the attack.
