Mark Garrity Shea, an 11-year-old with a naturalist's curiosity in the world beyond his Baltimore County back yard, died Tuesday after he was attacked by a pack of hyenas while on safari with his mother in Botswana. Known as Garrit, he was a lean, freckle-faced boy with a keen interest in the natural world and a collector's eye for its treasures. In a bedroom at his father's home, he kept a small shelf to display his trophies, including an elephant tusk, a whale tooth and, his favorite, a bear claw from a camping trip in New Mexico.
