Question of the Day
Campers were arriving at the Hidden Valley Boy Scout Camp near Loysville, about 25 miles northwest of Harrisburg, for a week of camping, police said.
The boy was waiting outside the camp’s health lodge to have his health records reviewed at the time of the accident, officials said.
Bear killed after boy’s death
AMERICAN FORK — Wildlife officers yesterday fatally wounded a bear that they thought was the same animal that snatched an 11-year-old boy from his family’s tent and killed the youngster.
The bear had been wounded early in the day and was pursued by hunters aided by a helicopter and 26 tracking dogs. It was described as a male, possibly 300 pounds and “jet black.” Authorities were sure it was the right animal because the dogs had tracked its scent from the boy’s campsite.
The bear was confirmed dead late yesterday morning near the area where the boy was killed, said Lt. Scott White of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.
The boy was sleeping alone in a section of the family’s large tent late Sunday. He screamed before he was dragged away in his sleeping bag in a canyon about 30 miles southeast of Salt Lake City, said sheriff’s Lt. Dennis Harris. The boy’s body was found about 400 yards from the tent, Lt. Harris said.
