Bear suspected in attacks killed Durango Herald

ASPEN – The black bear believed to be responsible for attacking two campers in separate incidents near Aspen this week has been killed by state wildlife officers.
Spokesman Mike Porras of the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Division says officers are confident that the bear was the one that bit two campers as they slept in their tents on Friday and Saturday. Both suffered leg injuries in the attacks at the campsites at Crater Lakes and the nearby Minnehaha Gulch area.
Department manager Perry Will says he believes only one bear was responsible given the similarities and locations of the attacks.
