The sheriff and game wardens were investigating the death. The sheriff declined to release the name of the man who was killed.

The victim was originally from Pennsylvania, according to KBZK.com.

The company's website says that it is a "full service wildlife casting agency" which aims to provide "healthy, photogenic, well-mannered predators for the entertainment industry." It has numerous animals, including three grizzly bears.
