BOZEMAN, Mont. — On Wednesday, Montana biologists euthanized a female grizzly that had taken to eating human food in the West Yellowstone area, frustrating a state bear expert with campers’ failure to secure their food, reports The Bozeman Daily Chronicle.
“It is always frustrating to have to make this type of decision and remove a bear for things that could have been basically prevented by people,” Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks bear specialist Kevin Frey said on Thursday.
Frey said the grizzly was about 10 with no cubs, and had gotten into a large quantity of soda, coolers, garbage and bird seeds, reports The Bozeman Daily Chronicle.
