A hiker at the Yellowstone National Park was killed by a grizzly bear, and it was the first fatal bear mauling in the park since 1986. Yellowstone National Park officials says, it appears the man and his wife surprised a female grizzly and her cubs Wednesday morning.
Nash says investigators have been interviewing the woman about the bear attack, which took place close to Canyon Village, near the middle of the park. He says authorities aren’t prepared to release the man’s name, age or hometown and likely won’t release more details until Thursday.
Nash says park officials haven’t taken any action.
