CHEYENNE, Wyo. The judge in a lawsuit filed by the widow of a man killed by a grizzly bear has decided not to view the mauling site near Yellowstone National Park in person on the advice of the U.S. Marshals Service, which has deemed the area too risky because of recent bear activity.
A 430-pound grizzly killed Erwin F. Evert, of Park Ridge, Ill., six miles east of Yellowstone in June, 2010. The male grizzly had just reawakened after being trapped, tranquilized and studied by members of the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team, which is tasked with researching grizzly bears in the Yellowstone region.
Evert's widow, Yolanda Evert, has filed a $5 million wrongful death lawsuit against the federal government, saying the researchers should not have trapped the bear so close to a trail and cabins. She also alleges they prematurely took down signs that warned passers-by of their work.

Animals have more rights than humans ?
US Marshal’s Service cowed by “bear threat” ! ! !
Have a few of the armed local residents accompany them and no injury to the precious skin of the Judge will occur, and the US Marshals will likewise be protected by the armed locals.
No guarantee about whether a bear rug might be created, however.
From the perspective of the widow and her lawsuit, this ‘official opinion’ can only help her case.
I can only hope the D.A. files Reckless Endangerment charges against the “Armed & Rangerous” whose enviro-whacko views are the real cause of this horrific death of one of America’s best botanists.
Just like sodomists and other moral degenerates have more rights than normal married heterosexuals.
It's an upside-down America now, don'tcha know...
Thanks for the ping!
Give the judge some pepper spray and send him up...Call a bear-whisperer. Both worked so well for Timothy Treadwell...
I wonder just how in the heck those nearby residents are surviving when the US Mashalls Service and a judge won’t go near the place?
Animals have more rights for sure.
Now, THAT'S one pissed off bear.
Them bears do get mean sometimes.
