Bear kills guide, hurts his client in Wyoming
JACKSON, Wyo. — Wyoming authorities say a hunting guide has been found dead after he and a client were attacked by a bear.
The body of 37-year-old Mark Uptain was found Saturday. Teton County spokesman Billy Kirk said the client, Corey Chubon of Florida, suffered leg, chest and arm injuries and was flown to a Jackson hospital. Authorities said Chubon was bow hunting and shot an elk Thursday, but he and Uptain could not find the animal until Friday. They were preparing to pack it out that day when they were charged by two bears.
