Yellowstone officials trapped a grizzly bear sow and her cub near Yellowstone Lake, and say they will euthanize the adult if DNA proves she killed a man in the Park last week.
The body of 63 year old Lance Crosby was found near Elephant Back Loop trail near Yellowstone Lake Friday. Park officials say he often hiked in this area, alone, and without bear spray. Although his body had been partially eaten, Yellowstone Superintendent Dan Wenk would not call the attack predatory.
Wenk said, “We have no way of knowing what the circumstances were around his death.”
