    Woman assaulted in Rocky Mountain National Park - KDVR

    Woman assaulted in Rocky Mountain National Park

    Alexis Gentry KDVR Denver

    10:36 AM MDT, June 14, 2010

    ESTES PARK - Authorities say a woman was assaulted while jogging in Rocky Mountain National Park Saturday.

    The victim, a 20-year-old woman, told police she was running a trail in the area and stopped to take a break when she was attacked by a white male between 5'4" and 5'9". The suspect was wearing a black windbreaker.

    The woman fought off the attacker and was later taken to the Estes Park Medical Center, where she was treated for minor injuries and released.

    The attack occurred near the Glacier Basin Campground. Rangers performed a containment and increased patrols in the area.

    If anyone was in the vicinity of the attack Saturday night or has information pertaining to this incident, they are encouraged to call Rocky Mountain National Park at (970) 586-1204.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report
    "Run for your life from the man who tells you that money is evil. That sentence is the leper's bell of an approaching looter. So long as men live together on earth and need means to deal with one another-their only substitute, if they abandon money, is the muzzle of a gun."

    Dirtbags willing to do this type of crime deserve nothing but a bullet between the eyes...

    Sorry, but this really bothers me...as Uncle Ted says, "No repeat offenders, just dead offendres."

    Don't be surprised by this. People are murdered in state or national parks every year.

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A grizzly bear killed a Wyoming man outside Yellowstone National Park, apparently just hours after researchers trapped and tranquilized the animal.

    That sounds like it needs to be a new thread.

    To bad we can't get the BG in the first post together with the bear in the other post. Then we'd see some real justice.

    I always carried in national parks before it was legal. Just because a politician made a law I am not going to be a sheep.

    I was always ready to deal with the ramifications of defending my life even where not legal.

    However I DO NOT carry on govt property or state or local offices as that is illegal and homie dont play that.

    But out in the woods deep out ??? Cmon man...

    I started carrying in National Parks back in the 60's after my wife's cousin was attacked by a grizzly in West Yellowstone while camping with a friend. The friend was killed, the cousin was never the same (mentally). They were asleep in a tent and though they had secured their food properly, the bear was attracted by the smell of food residue on the friends arms from washing their dinner dishes. There was quite a lot of coverage including an article in Life Mag. at the time it happened. I refuse to be a victim. I bought my Ruger .44 mag. Super Redhawk with a 5 1/2" barrel for my first trip to Yellowstone. It fit in my backpack every time I got out of the car.
