The man killed the animal by suffocating it, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Northeast Region. Exactly how he did so wasn’t immediately clear.
The man’s identity has not been released.

The park closed after the attack for an investigation, but reopened Monday evening, according to the Coloradoan.
