Bowhunter tracking wounded elk attacked by grizzly

A bowhunter in Idaho who had shot an elk the night before and was tracking it by a trail of blood found his quarry – and a grizzly bear that was claiming the dead animal.

The unidentified man was bitten on the shoulder by the ferocious bear near Sheridan Creek, west of Shotgun, in Clark County, according to an Idaho Department of Fish and Game report. He and his hunting partner, who were not carrying guns or bear repellant, were following the elk’s blood trail when they saw the grizzly bear’s tracks. They came face-to-face with the bear when they found the carcass of the bull elk, according to the Island Park News.
