A few days before our Lodore trip I saw this article:
Ranger kills bear at Dinosaur National Monument | ksl.com
About a bear being shot by a ranger at Lodore put in.
Two days into our trip I come across this:
At first I thought it was a dead cow, but then closer inspections revealed it being a bear.
Found him right at the bottom of this Unnamed rapid in the eddy Google Maps
The sighting has been reported to the rangers.
