Family Seek 2.5 Million Over Fatal Bear Attack

_In the moments after a black bear hauled off her 11-year-old son in American Fork Canyon last June, Rebecca Ives said . . . [r]escuers placed yellow tape around the family's campsite and took them to safety.

[She says] such markers should have been placed around the site before the family arrived. The bear that killed Sam Ives raided campers earlier that morning and authorities were notified. . . .

"We would have known something was up if there was just yellow tape up there, and I would still have my son," a tearful Ives said at attorney Allen K. Young's Provo office.

Their suits are seeking $2 million from the U.S. Forest Service and $550,000 from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) . . ._
