A hiker in Canada’s Yoho National Park, British Columbia, encountered the carcass of a grizzly bear during the Labor Day weekend, the Rocky Mountain Outlook reported. According to wildlife officials, the bear had been gored to death by a mountain goat in a defense attack.

Officials said that mountain goats rarely triumph in their altercations with bears.

The bear’s carcass was discovered by a hiker on September 4 near the Burgess Pass trail, the Rocky Mountain Outlook reported. At the time, the bear’s cause of death could not be determined. So, wildlife officials with Parks Canada decided to conduct an autopsy.
