BILLILNGS, Mont. –  An investigation into a grizzly bear that mauled three campers outside Yellowstone National Park reveals the animal had parasites and was struggling to feed herself and three cubs.

But the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service concluded in a report released Monday that poor nutrition alone does not explain such predatory behavior.

Kevin Kammer, 48, of Grand Rapids, Mich., was killed and two people were hospitalized when the 216-pound grizzly tore into their tents in a nighttime attack on July 28.

The bear was captured a day after the attacks and was later euthanized. Its three cubs are now in a Billings zoo.
