Montana wild life officials now claim that the animal attacks once thought to be bear attacks were really wild poodles. These attacks that killed one and injured two were first reported as being grizzly bears.
One of the park rangers, an avid poodle supporter, hid the identity of the true attack animal. This ranger said to be president of the Poodle Protection Project, an organization that protects the reputation of poodle dogs, did not want a rush to judgment regarding the true attackers.
"He had us looking for the wrong animal for days putting others at risk. Poodles known for their killer instincts if left in the wild have enjoyed the protection of this group in the past."
"There are no bad poodles, just bad owners," a spokesman for the group said.
