Yellowstone Hikers Attacked By Grizzly

Grizzly

Two hikers on the Cygnet Lakes Trail near Canyon Village in Yellowstone National Park were hurt when they were attacked by a female grizzly bear yesterday.  According to park officials, the hikers were in a group of four hiking the trail about 11:30 am when they were approached by a young cub.  Then a sow appeared and charged the group.  Two in the group sprayed the bear with their bear spray and the bear retreated with her cub.  The park release says two members of the group suffered bite and claw wounds – one was treated at the trailhead and the other sent to a nearby hospital.  Large Carnivore Conflict Coordinator Brian DeBolt with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department says it is rare that a grizzly bear attacks groups of three or more people.

    I recently saw an advertisement for a product that’s sure to be a big hit with outdoorsmen. Especially those of us who stomp around in the woods when the temperatures climb into the nineties.
