JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming’s workplace safety office has fined an outdoor guide company for failing to make a timely report of a death.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports that the Wyoming Occupational Safety and Health Administration has fined Martin Outfitters for failing to file a report within eight hours of a workplace fatality.

The notification issued by the administration says the violation is the result of the death of 37-year-old guide Mark Uptain, who was mauled by a grizzly bear on Terrace Mountain Sept. 14.

The administration did not fault owner Dan Martin for Uptain’s death.

The notice says the northwestern Wyoming company has until Thursday to pay or contest the violation that carries a $5,000 penalty, but is classified as “other-than-serious.”



Martin did not respond to the newspaper’s interview request.
