“This decision is never made lightly, and when it is made, it is to prevent more attacks by that particular bear,” Alberta Fish and Wildlife said in a Facebook post.
CALGARY — Alberta Fish and Wildlife confirms the grizzly bear that killed a woman near Water Valley, Alta. last week has been captured and was to be euthanized Sunday night. While fatal bear attacks are rare—there have only been around 180 deaths from bear attacks in North America since the late 1700s—they never fail to shock with their brutality.
Officers captured two mature female grizzlies on Saturday near the site of the fatal May 25 attack in the community approximately 60 kilometres northwest of Calgary. Grizzly bears have certainly been on my mind recently. Last year, my fiancée, Virginia, and I moved to Bozeman, Montana. We spend a ton of time outdoors, which means we now enter grizzly habitat virtually every day.
