Man-Eating Bear Shot

PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, Far East () -- Hunters have tracked and killed a bear that ate the remains of a 45-year-old man along the banks of a remote river on Russia's Kamchatka peninsula, Itar-Tass reported Tuesday.


"Local hunters ... know well that a wild beast that once tasted human flesh will not stop at that," the agency reported.


Authorities discovered the man's body several days ago and determined that he had died before the bear began feeding on the remains, Itar-Tass reported.
