History of Old Ephraim, Utah

A bear like Old Ephraim could do serious damge to a heard of sheep, but this story is tragic because it ended the ara of the grizzly bears in this region.

During the actual confrontation, Clark probably didn't have time to consider how he felt about killing Old Ephraim, because the bear would have killed him. But according to Clark's niece, Thelma Daniels, her uncle later spoke of regrets, because the grizzly was such a magnificent animal.

"If I had it to do over again," he once said, "I wouldn't do it." Clark remained a bachelor all of his life and died in 1960.
