BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) – Yellowstone National Park officials say a grizzly bear killed a 59-year-old Michigan man whose body was found by hikers last week.
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 released Monday concluded Wallace 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.
