Bear Defending Cub Attacks 10-Year-Old Boy at Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone bear that attacked Washington boy won’t be captured, killed

- Officials in Yellowstone National Park say they don't plan to capture or kill a bear that injured a 10-year-old boy from Washington state.

The boy ran away from the bear, which emerged from vegetation near the trail, officials said in a statement.

Officials are searching for the bear, which they say is likely a grizzly with at least one cub, according to USA Today. "We wish their son a full recovery from his injuries".

Divide and Spring Creek trails are closed temporarily while park rangers inspect for signs of bear activity.

An Oregon man who said he and his buddy were on a "last hurrah" tour through national parks before he entered alcohol treatment was sentenced Thursday to 130 days in jail for his drunken behavior, including harassing a bison that had stopped traffic in Yellowstone National Park. The bear chased the boy and knocked him over.

Aside from jail time, Reinke was given five years of unsupervised probation, during which he must abstain from alcohol and drugs and can not enter Yellowstone, Glacier or Grand Teton national parks, the news outlet said. "We applaud the family for travelling in a group, carrying bear spray, and knowing how to effectively use it", Yellowstone National Park Deputy Superintendent Pat Kenney said. The boy was given first-aid at a nearby clinic, where he was treated for a sprained wrist and puncture wounds on his back and hips.

Yellowstone National Park reported that law enforcement and bear management staff responded immediately to the area and are now investigating the incident, including for signs that would identify the bear species.

Officials recommend hikers carry bear spray, stay alert, make noise and hike in groups of three or more.

He was then transferred to a hospital in Big Sky.
