In a national park in Alaska, a grizzly bear kills a hunter: the first case in 40 years
A grizzly bear killed a hunter in the largest national park in the United States - the first of its kind in the area, says USA Today.
On Sunday, September 20, a grizzly bear maimed and killed a hunter in a park in Alaska, the National Park Service (NPS) confirmed.
The deadly attack took place in Wrangell St. Elias National Park and Wildlife Refuge, America's largest national park, when a man went on a 10-day elk hunt with a friend.
As a result of the attack, only the hunter was injured. The exact details of the injuries that led to the death have not been released, and the hunter's name has not been revealed until the investigation is complete.
“This incident is the first known fatal bear attack in Wangel St Elias National Park and Preserve since the park was founded in 1980,” the NPS said in a statement. "Visitors are advised to exercise caution when traveling to remote areas and to take precautions such as wearing bear spray and using bear-resistant food containers."

The Wrangel St Elias National Park and Wildlife Refuge is 13,2 million acres (5,3 million hectares) in size and is equal to Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park and Switzerland combined.
Even outside the park, deadly bear attacks are very rare. According to Alaska News Source, the continent of North America has an average of 2,56 deaths annually as a result of bear attacks.
