A large black bear was found eating the remains of a man in Humboldt County, California earlier this week.
The man had gone to check on his water supply and suffered from a heart attack in the process. He died before the bear found him and was not attacked by the bear, but consumed after his death.
According to the police, the bear had managed to eat nearly 85 percent of the man’s body.
In spite of this, authorities say that there is no reason to think that the bear is a threat to anyone and insisted that it did not attack or kill the man, but was only acting as a scavenger.
