Bear attack believed responsible after man’s body found by side of the road

British Columbia’s Coroners Service has identified the man believed to be the victim of a fatal bear attack.

Ward O’Connor of Mackenzie, north of Prince George, B.C. was found on the side of a service road.

O’Connor, 27,  and his fiancée Jami Wallace were camping about 10 kilometers along a forest service road. Wallace was sleeping inside their trailer while O’Connor slept outside, near a campfire.

When RCMP officers arrived, they found a black bear and wolf nearby. Both animals were shot and killed. O’Connor had posted pictures of the wolf on his Facebook site.

The victim’s father says it appears his son was killed by the bear because his injuries are consistent with a bear attack.
