Grizzly kills man at Yellowstone National Park

Attack is first fatal mauling since 1986

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. — Yellowstone National Park officials say a grizzly bear has killed a hiker in the park’s backcountry — the first fatal bear mauling in the park since 1986.

Park spokesman Al Nash 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 against the bear.
