 Grizzly bear that mauled man shot and killed

A grizzly bear linked by DNA to the killing of
a Wyoming man outside Yellowstone National Park has been tracked down by helicopter and shot dead.
Chris Servheen of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service says the bear was found Saturday by trackers following a signal from a radio collar that had been placed around the bear's neck just a few hours before the attack
The bear died about 2 miles from where 70-year-old Erwin Frank
Evert's body was found Thursday. Evert had been hiking near his cabin in the Kitty Creek drainage, east of Yellowstone.
The Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team based in Bozeman, Mont., says there will be an investigation into whether procedures were followed when the bear was tranquilized and fitted with the collar.
