CHEYENNE, Wyoming — A grizzly bear bit a hunter in an attack in western Wyoming, sending him to a hospital with minor injuries, but officials said Monday they found no link to a bear that killed a man earlier this month.

Two elk hunters surprised a female grizzly with two cubs Sunday just north of Dubois.

The bear bit one of the hunters on the side, Wyoming Game and Fish Department Regional Wildlife Supervisor Jason Hunter said.

In the other attack this month, a bear killed Adam Thomas Stewart, 31, of Virgin, Utah, a researcher whose body was found Sept. 12 in Bridger-Teton National Forest after a five-day search.
