BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A grizzly bear killed a Michigan man whose body was found by hikers last week in Yellowstone National Park, officials said Monday.
The victim was identified Monday as John Wallace of Chassell, Mich.
Wallace's body was discovered along a trail about five miles from the nearest trailhead. Results of an autopsy concluded that he died as a result of traumatic injuries from a bear attack.
It is the second time a visitor to the park has been killed by a bear this year.
Authorities say Wallace likely died Wednesday or Thursday.
He was traveling alone and had pitched a tent in a campground on Wednesday, park officials said. Yellowstone Superintendent Dan Wenk has previously said that the hiker was found with a snack bar in his closed backpack, but that it appears the grizzly did not try to get at the food.
