The male bear, which weighed at least 420 pounds (190kg), was later shot and killed when it charged wildlife workers investigating the attack.The moose carcass was found about 50 yards (45 meters) from the site of the attack, said a Montana Fish,Wildlife

and Parks spokesperson, Morgan Jacobsen.Mock, who suffered significant scalp and facial wounds, managed to call 911 after the attack and was found after searchers looked for him for about 50 minutes.He was transported by toboggan and snowmobile to an ambulance before being taken to a hospital in the city of Idaho Falls, where he died, according to the sheriff’s office.

Mock was a guide at Backcountry Adventure, which provides snowmobile rentals and tours in Yellowstone national park and surrounding areas of national forest, according to the company’s Facebook page.Read moreA fundraising website set up on Mock’s behalf after the mauling said he was passionate about the outdoors and a beloved guide for Yellowstone visitors.

Residue from bear spray – a Mace-like deterrent meant to protect against attacks – was found on Mock’s clothing, but officials could not determine to what extent he was able to use it against the bear.The grizzly was killed Friday after it charged a group of seven game wardens and other personnel as they approached the scene of the attack. Several people fired at the animal and it died about 20 yards (18 meters) from the group, Jacobsen said.

Officials said they are confident the bear that was killed was the one that attacked Mock.The Yellowstone region ofMontana, Idaho and Wyoming is home to more than 700 bears. Fatal attacks on humans are relatively rare but have increased as the grizzly population grew and more people moved into rural areas near bear habitat. Since 2010 grizzlies in the Yellowstone region have killed eight people, including Mock. Three died inside the park.

The last death before Mock’s was in 2018, when a hunting guide and his client were attacked in Wyoming and the guide was killed.Grizzlies have been federally protected as a threatened species outside Alaska since 1975 after being widely exterminated by trappers and hunters early last century.

Being near bears is part of the allure, and the risk. I’m not a snowmobile person. Think real men hike. Hemingway style. Oh, and 'wildlife workers' who unjustly killed this beautiful bear, only did so after the bear charged them? Oh sure, where have we heard this before? We need to demand body cams on wildlife cops/workers. Way too many trigger-happy sociopaths weasle their way into such careers.

So it strikes me as rather absurd when some humans get all indignant, like how 'dare' a wild animal attack a human being! We simlly MUST punish that wild animal - we must kill it, right now!! But it's perfectly fine to slaughter them for any 'reason' at all. Insane. The bear was in his/her home, protecting their fresh food supply. Therefore, it was simply doing what comes natural. On the other hand, we have countless humans invading their space, slaughtering them bec they want a damn bear rug, a trophy. Perfectly fine to slaughter them, rt.?

I’m sure the guide would have been saddened the bear was killed Grizzlies sick of humans 2 many humans get irate, vengeful when a wild animal 'dares' 2 attack a 'precious' human being. They set out for revenge, sometimes slaughtering the 'guilty' wild animal, other times killing any of them, guilty or not. How many bears have been slaughtered 4 humans' selfish wants?

Sad... all the way around. It is VERY sad this man suffered a horrifying attack, then succombed to his injuries. At the same time, I do NOT agree w/the subsequent killing of the bear. Humans go into the BEARS' homes, then kill the bears for being bears ffs. It's always vengeance killing of the wildlife. 😔

When nature calls blame the victim. should have a big caliber gun on a side

Grizzly mauling near Yellowstone kills backcountry guideA backcountry guide has died after he was mauled by a large grizzly bear just outside of Yellowstone National Park in Montana It is called the back country for a reason. Did the bear have the right to live there or the human who, after watching too many movies decided to intrude. Leave the animals alone and don't get too close to their homes and this WILL NOT HAPPEN
