Forest Service reopens campground after trackers fail to locate bear that attacked camper

The Arizona Department of Game and Fish has given up the hunt for a bear that clawed a camper in her tent at a campground near Christopher Creek. Hunters using dogs failed to pick up the scent of the black bear the day after the attack. Hunters then staked out the campground in hopes the bear would return, but the wily bruin stayed away.
