Yikes….kind of makes you wonder how fragile the human is in nature.
A man tentatively identified as Thomas Puerta has died after being mauled and partially eaten by a brown bear in Alaska.
The 54 year old was reported missing after leaving Sitka for Chichagof Island Thursday, and the partially devoured body was found on Sunday.
Authorities are now hunting down the possible bears responsible for the body while the medical examiner performs further analysis.
Sheriffs state their rationale behind the bear hunt is due to possible repeat attacks.
Solving violence with more violence…sad….This is the first bear attack in southeastern Alaska since 2000.
