Aspen Valley Hospital officials have taken steps to better secure a container that stores hazardous materials after a bear broke into it and dragged body parts out. Aspen Public Radio’s Carolyn Sackariason has the details.
A bear broke through an unsecured door on a haz-mat trailer parked next to the hospital a few weeks ago. The bruin sniffed out a hazardous materials storage bag containing bones from a cadaver that had been discarded after an orthopaedic training exercise. That’s according to AVH spokesperson Ginny Dyche.
