Grizzly Bear Hospitalizes Idaho Man

In what is the second grizzly bear attack in Idaho in less than a year, an unnamed 33-year-old man was mauled near his home on Tuesday. "He just stepped outside of his house to look for his dog ... then the bear knocked him down," Idaho Fish and Game Regional Supervisor Steve Schmidt told the Associated Press. "The bear caused significant injuries to his head, back, shoulder and buttocks. In other words, the bear was biting him all over his backside." The victim is in stable condition at an Idaho Falls hospital. Read more here.

I think this is just one more reason why the yellowstone grizzly needs delisted and the numbers managed. Hopefully they catch this bear and do the right thing before it attacks again.

A griz attack has nothing to do with numbers and population control. I think what Brent meant to say is that this is one more piece of information that can be manipulated so people can hunt an animal that until recently was in danger of extinction. Maybe the grizzly was trying to do some "population control" of humans. I hunt but I don't lie to myself by saying I am noble and helping an animal species. I don't need to lie, I do it because I like it and I like eating too.

I live up in the Idaho panhandle and I agree with William. We really don't have many grizzlys up here. In my opinion this bear just needs to be killed and we should leave the rest alone at least untill the population rises significantly more.
