WY: Fatal Bear Attack

Officials from Wyoming’s Game and Fish Department confirmed late Monday that a 31-year-old Utah man had been killed by a bear.

The body of Adam Thomas Stewart, 31, was found adjacent to two deer carcasses that bears had been feeding on in Bridger-Teton National Forest.

A release from the Wyoming wildlife agency said Fremont County Coroner Ed McAuslan "indicated the pathologist’s preliminary report stated the individual suffered blunt force trauma from a probable bear bite."

Evidence collected at the site is being analyzed to try to determine if the bear that attacked Stewart was a grizzly or a black bear.

Two deer carcasses?
In the same area?
That seams suspicious.

And why wasn't this man armed in bear country?
