SALMON, Idaho (Reuters) - Rangers have taken the rare step of capturing and killing a grizzly bear deemed a threat to human safety in Yellowstone National Park after the bruin menaced a hiker without any apparent provocation.

Bear managers said the 4-year-old male grizzly was euthanized on Monday, two days after the 258-pound animal charged at but did not injure a man sitting along a hiking trail near Yellowstone Lake.

The encounter ended after the bear tore into a food-filled backpack the hiker threw at the animal.
