Grizzly Bears Maul One Hunter, Charge At Another

Grizzly Bear

One bow hunter was injured and another unhurt by grizzly bears in two separate attacks in northwest Wyoming late last week.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Dept says neither bear survived the encounters but isn’t saying how the bears died. 

      It does say in a statement issued Monday that it is helping the U-S Fish and Wildlife Service investigate both incidents. 

      The first incident was Thursday in the Thorofare region southeast of Yellowstone National Park. It resulted in a hunter being flown to a hospital with unspecified injuries. 

       The second incident occurred Saturday on Rattlesnake Mountain west of Cody and involved a grizzly charging but not attacking another bow hunter.

      Grizzlies in the Yellowstone region are protected as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.
