Bear either liked fast food or didn't like cyclists, or both.http://www.ibtimes.com/grizzly-bear-kills-cyclist-near-montana-national-park-2388455
A grizzly bear attacked and killed a cyclist near the Glacier National Park in Montana on Wednesday, police reportedly said. Armed police officers have launched a search for the bear.
Brad Treat, 38, a career law-enforcement officer with the U.S. Forest Service, died after the grizzly attacked him on a trail, according to Flathead County Sheriff Chuck Curry, the Daily Inter Lake reported.
Officials said the grizzly confronted two cyclists on a trail after they disturbed it. The rider who was killed was swept off his saddle by the bear while the other rode off to get help.
The first call for emergency responders came in around 5 p.m. EDT. Treat’s body was found about an hour later and was transported by the Two Bear Air Rescue helicopter.
The helicopter crew later reported spotting a grizzly bear in a marsh near the scene of the incident.
Pretty ironic. Feel bad for the guy though, especially his family and friends.
As do vehicles.

Grizzly bears don't like to be scared.
