(CNN)A female grizzly bear was euthanized Thursday after an autopsy confirmed she killed a hiker in Yellowstone National Park last week.
Autopsy results confirmed that Lance Crosby, 63, died as a result of traumatic injuries sustained from a grizzly bear attack, park officials said. Additional evidence also pointed to the female grizzly as his attacker, they said.
Two grizzly cubs captured with her are being transferred to a facility accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
