Austin American-Statesman - - FRIDAYBRIEFING - Com­piled from wire re­ports

COOKE CITY — One of the sur­vivors of a deadly griz­zly bear at­tack said she re­al­ized her only hope was to play dead af­ter feel­ing the bear’s jaw clamp onto her arm in the mid­dle of the night. Wildlife of­fi­cials were test­ing the DNA of a bear cap­tured at the site of the early Wed­nes­day maul­ing to con­firm it was the an­i­mal that also killed a Michi­gan man and hurt an­other camper near Yel­low­stone Na­tional Park, but they said they were con­fi­dent they had caught the right an­i­mal.
