Man mauled to death by captive grizzly in Montana

Published November 05, 2012
Associated Press
A 24-year-old man was mauled to death Sunday morning while cleaning a grizzly bear enclosure at a wildlife casting agency in southwestern Montana, Gallatin County officials said.
The man was mauled by one or both of the captive-bred grizzly bears at the Animals of Montana facility north of Bozeman, Sheriff Brian Gootkin said.
The victim's name wasn't immediately released, but officials said he's originally from Pennsylvania.
Chuck Watson, attorney for Animals of Montana's owner, Troy Hyde, told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle the grizzly bear had to be put down in order to recover the victim.

Cleaning the enclosure with the bears still inside? Who's bright idea was that? I don't care how trained they are-- grizzly bears are not to be underestimated.

The only animal that zookeepers will not enter the enclosure unless they're sedated are polar bears.
