A boy camping at Dewey Bridge along the Colorado River was injured by a bear while sleeping Friday. The 13-year-old victim suffered bites to his right cheek and right ear, according to the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. The child described the bear as “about his size” with black fur, so officials are assuming it was a smaller animal, likely around two years old. And later in the news, Public Lands Corner delves into the proposed changes on how the U.S. Forest Service conducts environmental reviews under NEPA. Tune in.
