The body of a fourth victim suspected of being killed by a bear that’s ‘developed a taste for human flesh’ in the past three weeks was found in a forest in northern Japan on Friday, reports said.

The badly mauled corpse has yet to be identified, but police in Akita prefecture were searching for a 74-year-old woman named as Tsuwa Suzuki, who was reported missing a day earlier, according to local media.

Hunters killed a bear just 10 metres (32 feet) from the spot where the woman’s remains were discovered in a mountain forest in Kazuno city, in Akita, although it remained unclear if she was killed by that animal, reports said.
