Authorities are on the search for the grizzly bear that knocked a U.S. Forest Service officer off his bike and killed him near Glacier National Park on Wednesday.

38 year old, Brad Treat, was riding with a friend on Highway 2 in Montana when the bear attacked. His friend managed to escape and returned with help but it was too late and Treat was pronounced dead on the scene. Since the attack the Green Gate/Half Moon trail systems have be shutdown as a precaution according to CNN.

DNA samples from the bear were collected at the scene by the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks in an effort correctly identify animal before actions are taken.
