A grizzly bear attack near Yellowstone National Park left a backcountry guide dead over the weekend, officials said. Charles “Carl” Mock, had been fishing just west of the park prior to the bear attack.

“The man had bear spray with him, but it’s unclear whether he was able to deploy it during the attack,” officials from the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Department said. 

Though he did receive treatment, Mock suffered a stroke and passed away on Saturday. He was 40 years old.

According to investigators, the bear appeared to have been defending a food source when it charged at Mock. The odds of such an attack in Yellowstone itself are about 1 in 2.7 million visits.

On April 20, 2008, a female race car driver forever left her mark on the sport of auto racing when she unexpectedly claimed a victory in the elite IndyCar series.

Driver Danica Patrick was behind the wheel for Andretti Green Racing, a team partially owned at the time by racing legend Mario Andretti. The race was Patrick’s 50th career start and it marked her third full year in the IndyCar series. 

Patrick’s win came at the Twin Ring Montegi track – a 1.5 mile oval course in Japan. She took the checkered flag a whopping 5.8594 seconds ahead of Helio Castroneves, a then two-time Indy 500 champion. After her win, Patrick left the IndyCar series in 2011 for NASCAR and then fully retired from racing in 2018. 

So what is Danica Patrick up to now? Rumor has it that she might be getting back into racing in an unexpected way.
