A Wyoming hunting guide was fatally mauled and his client was injured when a pair of grizzly bears attacked them Friday, officials said.
Authorities later euthanized two grizzly bears, a mother and a cub, who wildlife managers believe killed guide Mark Uptain and wounded his client Corey Chubon near the Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks border, according to USA Today.
“All available evidence indicates that these two bears were the bears involved in the Terrace Mountain attack," Wyoming Game and Fish Department spokeswoman Rebekah Fitzgerald said in a statement Sunday.
"Uptain and Chubon were attacked by bears as they field dressed the elk they had shot," officials reportedly said, according to Fox News.
"The deadly incident came weeks after a federal judge halted Wyoming state officials' plans to hold a grizzly hunt this month, according to USA Today," Fox News reports. "The hunt was put on hold until Oct. 1."
"I can only imagine how horrific this was," hunting guide Sy Gilliland told USA Today, according to Fox. "You've got a bear population that's basically un-hunted, is an apex predator, and has no fear of humans."
