Bear attack near Yellowstone National Park


COOKE CITY, MT (AP) -- Authorities have identified the third victim of a bear attack in a campground near Yellowstone National Park as a 21-year-old man from Colorado.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials say Ronald Singer, of Alamosa, Colo., was bitten in the attacks early Wednesday and treated a hospital in Cody, Wyo.

Hospital officials said Thursday that Singer was treated and released.

Wildlife officials have captured a grizzly bear and two cubs they believe dragged 48-year-old Kevin Kammer of Grand Rapids from his tent and killed him. Another camper, Deb Freele of London, Ontario, was scheduled for surgery Friday for bite wounds on her arm.

Officials were searching for a third cub and awaiting the results of DNA tests to confirm the bears were responsible for the attack.
