Man killed by bear near Yellowstone

HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Montana wildlife officials say one person was killed and two others were injured in a bear attack at a campground north of Yellowstone National Park. Fish, Wildlife and Parks spokesman Ron Aasheim says Park County officials reported a male was killed and two others were injured in a mauling reported at about 4 a.m. Wednesday east of Cooke City. The male was found dead in a tent at the Soda Butte campground.

His age and hometown were not available. Aasheim says another male was bitten on the leg and taken to a hospital in Cody, Wyo., while a woman suffered injuries to her arms. He says the sheriff's department report indicates tents in the area were smashed.
