Yellowstone National Park officials today said the bear that attacked a 10-year-old boy near Old Faithful yesterday was a grizzly. They also said they don’t plan to pursue or trap the bear.

The last bear attack in the park was in 2015, when a grizzly killed and partially consumed a hiker. In that case, the bear was trapped and euthanized.

Yellowstone National Park’s departing superintendent says he can’t quite shake the feeling that he is being punished for disagreeing with Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke about bison management. He held a press conference about his departure Thursday.
