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.

The news of the bear attacks comes just around the First Quarter Moon phase. A chart for the Moon phase at Kazuno has the Moon placed amidst the stars of Ursa Major, the Great Bear. On the ascendant are the stars of Wild Beast Lupus. Diana Rosenberg gives several examples of wild animal attacks under both these set of stars.
