Grizzly Kills Yellowstone Hiker

Yellowstone National Park officials announced the death of a hiker Monday who was fatally wounded by a grizzly bear last week. The Michigan man was hiking alone and had pitched a tent in a campground Wednesday, where he was later discovered by other hikers, though officials told the Associated Press that no one witnessed the attack. His body was discovered a few miles away from the site of another attack earlier this summer, where a mama grizzly killed a hiker in July. Officials have reason to believe that the both attacks could be traced to the same grizzly, and have set traps to catch the bear.
