A grizzly bear has attacked and killed a lone backpacker in Denali National Park and Preserve in Alaska. The attack happened late on Friday. Rangers, biologists and Alaska Wildlife Troopers were flying in on Saturday to recover the hiker's body, warn others who might be in the area, and track down what the Park Service described as a "predatory grizzly". It is the first fatal bear mauling in the park's recorded history, according to the National Park Service.
