YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK (AP) -- A second grizzly bear could be killed in connection with the fatal mauling of a Michigan man at Yellowstone National Park last summer.

Park superintendent Dan Wenk discussed the possibility earlier this month.

Park spokesman Al Nash said Tuesday that no date has been set for a decision.

One grizzly was euthanized last fall after it was linked to the scene of 59-year-old hiker John Wallace's death.
