Vogel BEAR KILLS JACK WELCH W BATTLE SATURDAY IN YELLOWSTONE PARK Jack Welch died Monday evening at the government hospital at Mammoth Hot springs from wounds infl cted by a bear in Yellowstone park last Friday. Welch was freighting baled hay for the engineer department and camped for the night near Turbid lake, fif teen miles east of Lake junction. Two men who were leaving the park were passengers with Welch. Welch was asleep under the wagon and between the rear wheels, one man was between the front wheels and the third was on top of the load. About one o’clock a big bear attacked Welch and dragged him from his bed. In the fight which ensued Welch was al most completely disemboweled, his right lung torn by the brute and the entire flesh from his right arm re moved. One of the men threw chunks of bacon at the bear which finally de tracted the animals attention and he made off with the pieces. The other man was so thoroly frightened that made his escape and has not yet been located. Welch was able to direct the other passengers to the corral to get a horse to ride to Muse’s road camp for help. He made his way to the gate but found the bear in possession and he was unable to get a horse for the trip. Fortunately a Park tourist came along in a Ford and the injured man was taken to the Muse camp for at tention. A message was phoned and early next morinig an ambulance was brought and Welch was taken to the hospital for attention. The next morning the load of baled hay was found completely wrecked by the infuriated bear. The bales were not only thrown from the wagon but all were broken open and the hay scattered about. The bear had re turned after devouring the bacon and was determined to find the men. Only their escape by means of the car which fortunately came along were their lives saved. Jack Welch is quite wt-ll known in Cody. For some t'mo he was employ ed at the sulphur mines and was ac quainted about town. He has been freighting n the park for the past two seasons. This is the third encounter with bears in Yellowstone park. Ned Frost and Ed Jones were injured last month and narrowly escaped death from a she bear at Lake camp. The plucky fight put up by the men was the only thing that saved their lives. Chub June was pulled out of his lied roll the last o fthe month and suffered a badly lacerated arm before the animal was driven away. It is believed that some definite ac tion will be taken by the authorities to rid the park of bears, it being pos sible that open season will be declared against them and anyone will be al lowed to shoot them on sight. Others think a less vigorous course will be pursued and the older she bears will be eliminated by the scouts. Miss Ethel Pitkin of Mt. Vernon, Ohio, i 3 visiting at the home of her brother, Rev. W. G. Pitkin. She ar rived on Saturday of last week and will be here for some time.
