Bear killed by Great Smoky Mountains NP was not cause of man’s death: Autopsy

Drugs, not a bear, killed a Tennessee man who headed into Great Smoky Mountains National Park last fall to poach ginseng roots, according to the autopsy results.

Unfortunately, park officials decided in September that a bear believed to have fed on William Lee Hill, Jr.'s body might have attacked and killed him, so they killed it.
