1 Dead, 2 Injured In Bear Attack
Montana wildlife officials say one person was killed and two others were injured in a bear attack at a campground north of Yellowstone National Park.
Fish, Wildlife and Parks spokesman Ron Aasheim says Park County officials reported a male was killed and two others were injured in a mauling reported at about 4 a.m. Wednesday east of Cooke City.
The male was found dead in a tent at the Soda Butte campground. His age and hometown were not available.
Aasheim says another male was bitten on the leg and taken to a hospital in Cody, Wyo., while a woman suffered injuries to her arms. He says the sheriff’s department report indicates tents in the area were smashed.
