A convicted killer who escaped from an Arizona prison says his plan was to overdose on heroin at Yellowstone National Park and let bears eat him.

Tracy Province told a sheriff's detective about his plan after he was captured in August and returned to Arizona.

According to a Mohave County sheriff's report, Province planned to shoot a gram of heroin and become bear food.

He says he didn't follow through because of divine intervention and because Yellowstone was too cold.
