About 11 PM last night, a rouge black bear tore open a tent an 11-year old boy was sleeping in. A half hour later searchers found his remains 400 yards away. Dogs are tracked down the large black bear and it was shot.
The killing took place in American Fork Canyon in the Wasatch Mountains NE of Provo, Utah.
