A Grizzly Bear Kills Someone In This Yellowstone National Park Region

A Yellowstone Male grizzly bear killed a cabin owner, botanist and non-Wyoming resident who has come here the past 30 seasons to “Botanise”, this past Thursday in the Shoshone National Forest near the east entrance of Yellowstone National Park. This happened near a research trapping site in Kitty Creek. These grizzly bear maulings in the wilds are very rare. This time of the year male bears can be especially aggressive as their mating season wraps up, but this can happen with all bears in the backcountry.

So why do I care? I am interested because I am from this region and I worked primarily on grizzly bears for over 30 years and near the begining of a long association with Yellowstone Grizzly Bears I worked for the research group mentioned in the article and besides what else is there to say on the Gulf Oil spill disastor…its a seriously bad thing.
