Grizzly kills man at Yellowstone


A grizzly bear that had been tranquilized, collared for research, and released killed a 70-year-old man near the entrance to Yellowstone Park. Officials killed the bear. DNA tests have confirmed it was the one that killed botanist Erwin Frank Evert.

This article from the Billings Gazette mentions the interesting role wind may have played in the attack. It doesn't mention that being tranquilized can in itself make a bear more aggressive than usual. We may never know whether that was an important factor here.

(Next time: Grizzly photos you've never seen before.)
