Hunter attacked by grizzly in Montana was killed not by the bear, but by a gunshot fired by friend trying to save him

Authorities say a hunter attacked by a grizzly in a Montana forest was killed not by the bear, but by a gunshot fired by a companion trying to save him. -- PHOTO: REUTERS BILLINGS, Montana (AP) - Authorities say a hunter attacked by a grizzly in a Montana forest was killed not by the bear, but by a gunshot fired by a companion trying to save him. Lincoln County Sheriff Roby Bowe said on Friday that 39-year-old Steve Stevenson died of a single gunshot wound to the chest. The cause of death was determined by the medical examiner with the Montana State Crime Lab. The shot was fired by 20-year-old Ty Bell, as he attempted to stop the bear's attack. Mr Bell had earlier shot and wounded what he thought was a black bear during a Sept 16 hunting trip along the Montana-Idaho border. The two men tracked the wounded grizzly into thick cover, where it apparently turned on Mr Stevenson.
