Two grizzly bears have been killed in northwest Montana, one by a hunter and one by Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks.
Information and Program Manager for District One, Dillon Tabish provides details.
“We had an adult male grizzly bear that was euthanized this weekend near Libby after he broke into a garage seeking a food source,” said Tabish. “Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks staff captured the bear on private property south of town, and because it had broken into a garage and fed on a harvested elk, we did put that bear down because it had previously attempted to break into a barn seeking food. We moved it because it was not successful in breaking into that barn, but this time it was successful and it appears that bears is just going to keep going after human food, so we decided to put that bear down.”
