A Captured Grizzly Bear In Yellowstone National Park

The National Park Service caught a grizzly bear male near Heart Mountain, the site where a hiker was killed by a grizzly bear. The bear was 25 years old and weighed 425 pounds. I have 2 initial observations…25 is a very old male bear and my second observation is that at 425 pounds this bear is about 100 pounds lighter than dominant male grizzly bears in Yellowstone National Park…a good candidate for the mankiller grizzly bear, but we will know more when the DNA of the prospective killer bear is compared to that of the captured bear.
