Bear Smells Food, Bear Wants Food, Bear Avoids Becoming A Problem

A property owner’s improper disposal of big game carcasses east of Hinton lead to an unwanted visitor earlier this month.

A young male grizzly, attracted to the smell of dead animals, was spotted trying to enter a barn full of live horses. Fish and Wildlife say the bear wouldn’t leave the area due to the established easy food source.

A live trap was set up and the bear obliged all involved. The Foothill Research Institute fitted the grizzly with a collar and relocated the bear south of Hinton.
