not the guilty party above
A group of hikers in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park ended their trek in horror after discovering a bear dining on human remains.
While walking the North Carolina arm of the Hazel Creek Trail, just a few miles from the Tennessee border, the group passed what appeared to be a deserted campsite, where they encountered a scattering of body parts. Nearby, a bear was spotted “scavenging the area,” according to a park press release.
“Staff arrived at campsite 82 shortly after midnight and confirmed the report of a deceased adult human male,” park officials said, the Charlotte Observer reported Saturday.
Rescuers also saw a bear, presumably the same one spotted by hikers hours before, “actively scavenging on the remains.” They then euthanized the creature, although the cause of death cannot firmly be traced back to the bear at this time.
