Relocated grizzly destroyed after returning to Fernie park

Cranbrook, BC, Canada / The Drive FM

Elk Valley WildsafeBC reports the animal was destroyed over the May long weekend in defense of property in a rural area west of the city.

This is the second bear to be destroyed this season in the area after one had to be removed from Lower Elk Valley Rd about two weeks ago.

Biologists returned to the Elk Valley recently to continue a study started last year that looks at the way grizzlies use the landscape and how they interact with people.

They plan to have radio collars on a sample size of approximately 10 grizzly bears and monitor their activity.
