A black bear reportedly ate a body of a man who died of a heart attack while on his way to check his water supplies.

According to LA Times, Marion Lee Williams, 65, from Humboldt County, collapsed and died from heart attack sometime last week not far from his property, from where the bear had also apparently lived. The bear probably came across Williams, dragged his body into a cave to eat.

“It looks like he collapsed and died,” Humboldt County Deputy Coroner Roy Horton reportedly said. “The bear comes along and sees a potential food source.”

The bear was able to eat about 85% of Williams’ body. He was identified by investigators from his dentures, fingerprints and pieces of clothing, reports said.

The bear was long gone when Williams’ body was found.

“The bear does not pose a public threat. It was just doing what bears do,” the California Department of Fish and Wildlife spokesman Andrew Hugnan reportedly said.

Williams was last seen alive on October 8, and was only reported missing by his friends on Saturday, October 18.
