Bear attack fatal

/

The Montana man who was seriously injured from a grizzly bear attack Thursday afternoon passed away Saturday morning.

40-year-old Carl Mock suffered a massive stroke and was unable to make a recovery in an Idaho Falls hospital. The grizzly bear attack had occurred near Bakers Hole Campground, about 3 miles north of West Yellowstone.

A group of seven investigators, including Montana Fish Wildlife and Park game wardens and bear specialists, as well as Forest Service personnel, revisited the site Friday to assess ongoing public safety risks and continue the investigation. An older male grizzly bear charged the group forcing them to shoot and kill the animal.
