Montana wildlife officials say they have captured the fourth and final grizzly bear believed involved in the fatal mauling of a Michigan man at a campground near Yellowstone National Park.
A sow and two of her three cubs had been trapped by Thursday. The final year-old cub was found in a culvert trap early Friday.
Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials say the bears will likely be moved to the state wildlife lab in Bozeman while officials decide what to do with the animals.
Results of DNA tests to determine if the bears were responsible for the attacks that injured two and killed Kevin Kammer of Grand Rapids, Michigan, are expected Friday.
Warden Capt. Sam Sheppard says evidence indicates all three yearlings likely participated in what he called a sustained attack.
