    A co-worker of mine is good friends with the victim's mother. What an awful, weird thing. Apparently they did EVERYTHING right and it still didn't work out positively. "Hungry, motivated young cougar" was the only explanation. Sheesh. Really all of us who hike anywhere in the West are at similar risk.
