"We are hopeful that we will learn something as to the cause of death and to the timing of that death," says Sanders.

She says Madura had been camping alone.

Bear eats delivery pizza left on doorstep in Colorado Springs



>>>COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) — While the idea behind contactless delivery is intended to keep people safe, it comes with its own dangers of attracting wildlife here in Colorado Springs.

Holly Vergunst ordered pizza delivery Tuesday night but then found the pizza box was empty by the time she opened it.

Vergunst watched her security footage to figure out what happened. A bear, caught on camera, devoured her dinner in less than two minutes.

This is a genuine American bear.

"This year he really packed on the pounds, looking like he was fat enough to hibernate in July and yet continuing to eat until his belly seemed to drag along the ground by late September."

>>>What led up to the scary encounter?
"As we came on the bridge we could see the bear feeding below along the bank," he explained. While that may sound scary enough for some people, Dupras told us that it was actually quite a common sight as his family has been "catch and release steelhead fishing" in the area for over 45 years.

"We moved to the middle of the bridge so we could see the bear and give us safe distance as the bears occasionally come up the bank and cross the road into the woods to access the river further up," he told us.

Just as they had expected, the bear came up. "But what happened next was atypical from the behaviour we've seen in the past," he said.

Yikes.  I'd have to change my drawers after that.

Black bear road kill observed at MM 22 @ I 77 in VA. It was smallish.  Maybe 150 pounds. Saw it this morning, but the DOT apparently cleaned up the shoulder by this evening.

>>>A Montana man who was mauled by a grizzly bear last week has died after suffering a "massive stroke" in hospital.

Carl Mock, 40, of West Yellowstone, was transported to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center on April 15 with "severe injuries" after being attacked by the bear just south of Baker's Hole Campground, roughly three miles north of West Yellowstone.

>>>The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) previously confirmed in a statement that a grizzly bear was shot and killed on Friday last week—the day after the attack—as personnel investigated the scene of the incident, which was closed to the public.

>>>The agency said Mock was believed to have been carrying bear spray at the time of the attack but it was unclear if he even got a chance to use it on the bear.

The FWP said seven investigators who were deployed to the scene were charged by a bear before reaching the area, despite making "continuous noise," including yelling, in an attempt to "haze" the animal—the process of trying to scare off the animal.

"Despite multiple attempts by all seven people to haze away the bear, it continued its charge. Due to this immediate safety risk, the bear was shot and died about 20 yards from the group. The bear was an older-age male grizzly," the FWP said.

Investigators found a moose carcass within 50 yards of the attack, which indicated the bear was likely defending a food source during the attack, the agency noted.
