Yellowstone National Park Officials have identified the three year-old child who died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound Saturday while staying with her family at the Grant Village campground.  The girl was identified as Ella Marie Tucker from Pocatello, Idaho.  According to investigators, the girl had picked up a gun belonging to her family and accidently fired it, sustaining a fatal injury.  National Park investigators are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.  In 2010, it became legal to carry firearms into the park, however hunting and discharge of firearms remain prohibited in Yellowstone National Park. Furthermore, the rule states that firearms should not be considered a wildlife protection strategy.
