Hiker killed by a bear at about 45 miles northwest of New York City


The killed victim  was Darsh Patel, 22, of Edison, who had come to the Apshawa Preserve, about 45 miles northwest of New York City, on Sunday, with four friends. The group of friends noticed the bear beginning to follow them. They ran and later, when they did not find their friend, they called the police. The body of the victim was found after about two hours. It’s supposed that the bear was looking for food. Kelcey Burguess, principal biologist and leader of the state Division of Fish and Wildlife’s black bear project and other officials believe that it was a mistake from the part of the hikers to run. The recommended solution in such situations is to move slowly without regarding the bear in eyes. In the Apshawa Preserve are estimated about 2,400 bruins in the forests.
