YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. — Yellowstone National Park
rangers are investigating whether a man found dead along a trail
was killed by a grizzly bear.

The man was found Friday morning by other hikers on the Mary
Mountain Trail. Authorities announced the death Saturday but did
not name the man.

Officials said the hiker was in his 60s and a native of
Michigan, but withheld further identification pending family
notification.

A release from the park said there were “signs of grizzly bear
activity at the scene” but that there was no immediate
determination of how the man died. Authorities say he likely
died Wednesday or Thursday.

The Mary Mountain Trail, the Cygnet Lakes Trail and the section
of the Hayden Valley west of the Grand Loop Road were closed to
hikers pending an investigation.


another numb-scull not carrying bear spray in a bear area. sad for
the man and his family, and sad that the bear will be killed.

Nope, it could happen to anybody, maybe even a numb-skull like you! Why do
we want grizzlies, or black bears either for that matter, in Yellowstone or
any other national park?

dude, get out of my thread, dont you have some mountain bikers to show
your ignorance to? yes, it could happen to anybody, but less likely
to happen to someone carrying bear spray that knows how to use it. and
yes, i am an expert
2 grizzly deaths in Yellowstone this year, the first in 25 years -
both with a common denominator - failure to hike in the wilderness
responsibly, and now a bear has to die for it as well.

of course, it could never happen to a shut-in couch potato.

Bear spray may or may not work. A bazooka would work better and surer.

Visitors are entitled to walk safely in any national park without having to
fear bears and other predators ,,, other than the human kind of course. Park
rangers by and large do not know how to manage their own ****!

of course, it could never happen to a shut-in couch potato.


Hey, better to be a couch potato than 6 feet under at the local cemetery.
But hang in there. IF you are lucky then maybe some day you can be a couch
potato too!

One last thing, this was not your thread, it was someone who goes by the
name of Bill Blodo. But once something gets posted to Usenet , it belongs to
the world. Either get some smarts or get lost!

The bear found someone in his bathroom after dark, I'm sure you know
the feeling of having someone in your space at a time you didn't allow
then to be there. Wouldn't you try to get rid of someone in a
situation like that? Well bears can't negotiate so they just smack,
plus the whole claws and teeth thing.

Bears and people don't mix - period! If park rangers had any sense, they
would know that and do something about it on a permanent basis. Simply just
moving the bears around doesn't work. If and when more people use the hiking
trails it will become increasingly evident.

More hikers = better fed bears. Win-win, I say.

I think the only wild animals that eat humans are carrion eaters like
vultures. Humans by and large do not make good food for most other animals
other than the microbes. Of course I realize if Tom Sherman were starving to
death, I would not want to be in the same tent with him.

country. We have Brown Bear neighbors, and we don't get munched for
lunch. You on the other had don't live anywhere near brown Bear country
and wouldn't even make a lousy snack, for our local bears..... Just
Say'en.....
