Grizzly Caught and Euthanized In Montana

KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) – Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks has captured and euthanized a male grizzly bear south of Condon because it was food conditioned and had a history of approaching residences.

Agency personnel captured the bear on Monday night with a culvert trap off Montana Highway 83 in Condon. The bear was estimated to be 3 years old and weighed 299 pounds.

The bear was originally captured incidentally in the summer of 2017 on the Flathead Indian Reservation after a different grizzly bear killed several llamas and chickens.

It was released but then recaptured within 10 days after getting into unsecured food attractants. The bear was moved once again.

The bear’s history of reported incidents includes breaking into structures in search of food, pulling a hunter-harvested deer from a shed and killing chickens.
