The 59-year-old man died from severe injuries sustained in the incident. This is the second victim in the Park this summer by a bear attack. Until then the last bear in the Park attack death dated back to 86. A hiker whose body was found last week in Yellowstone Park died from an attack by a bear, confirmed local authorities. The man was identified as John Wallace, of 59 years.
He was only traveling and had located their tent in an area close to a known tour called the Mary Mountain Trail. His body was found Friday morning by other two hikers. The autopsy carried out Sunday confirmed that Wallace died of serious injuries that caused the bear attack. There were no witnesses and we do not have much information about what happened to help determine why this attack occurred, said Nash, spokesman for the Park, as it picks up the Los Angeles Times. Nash explained that authorities fly over the zone where took place the event to give with the Plantigrade in question.
The next step is to see if we can give him and determine whether he is the bear that was involved in the incident. That could help us determine what happened, added. Chassell is the second victim in the Park this summer by a bear attack. In July was a bear grizzly who killed a 57-year-old man. In that case and according to park authorities, the animal reacted violently to man to perceive that he was a threat. Until then the last death by the attack of a bear in the Park dated back to 1986.
