The post was written due to the recent tragic death of a hiker killed by a grizzly bear in Yellowstone National Park last week. It was stated that deadly encounters between bears and humans in the park was rare.
After a bear and her cubs were caught close to where the man’s remains were found, (depending on DNA tests) the bear would be put down if it was the one that killed the man.
Last week a hiker was tragically killed (and partially eaten) by a bear in Yellowstone National Park. The man who was killed was an experienced hiker and a long-term seasonal employee of a “company that operates three urgent care clinics in the park” according to CBS News.
The article also states that “deadly encounters between bears and humans are rare. In close to 140 years, only 7 people were killed in the park by black and grizzly bears.”
Close to the site of the man’s remains, a female grizzly and two cubs were captured by park officials.
