Information.svg Please remember to mark your edits, such as your recent edits to The Matrix, as minor when (and only when) they genuinely are minor edits (see Wikipedia:Minor edit). Marking a major change as a minor one (and vice versa) is considered poor etiquette. The rule of thumb is that only an edit that consists solely of spelling corrections, formatting changes, or rearranging of text without modifying content should be flagged as a 'minor edit.' Thank you. - Taroaldo 05:07, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

List of fatal bear attacks in North America[edit]

Am I missing something here, or does this ref being used clearly state that it was a black bear that killed Munson? [1] Thank You --Omarcheeseboro (talk) 01:27, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Again. This link [2]. Look at the bottom. It says "Aug. 7, 2009: Donna Munson, 74, is found dead in her yard near Ouray. Wildlife officers said she was killed and partly eaten by at least one black bear. "
Along with "Officials, however, aren't sure whether the bear that killed Munson was the 394-pound male bruin shot by a sheriff's deputy who found the animal eating the woman's body on her property on Friday. " --Omarcheeseboro (talk) 01:56, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
In addition, I believe you're putting too much in the term "bruin". For example, look at the article for Bruin here. It says it can be used for any bear. Furthermore, I believe that grizzly bears in Colorado are if anything, very rare. This isn't a definitive source by any means, but look at what it says about Grizzlies in Colorado being extinct since the 70s. [3] Thank You. --Omarcheeseboro (talk) 02:08, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
I don't see it as inconsistent. The Denver Post says Black. I think it's pretty safe to take "bruin" as not meaning black or brown. I will change it to Black. Thank You. --Omarcheeseboro (talk) 02:49, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
