Yellowstone Grizzly Will be Left Alone
We reported yesterday about the tragic death of a hiker due to a grizzly attack. Yellowstone National Park Officials are not going to search for the grizzly sow that killed the 57 year old hiker. They stated the bear was doing what comes naturally in defending her cubs, and that this wasn't the first encounter with the hikers. The hikers had spotted the grizzly and cubs earlier and continued hiking, on the second encounter the sow attacked the man, while the wife yelled for help and called 911. There is speculation about what happened, but it's important to note that the bears are still in lower areas than normal from the high snow and this grizzly was just defending her cubs.
