Wildlife officials in Idaho are investigating the shooting of a young female grizzly bear near a private residence in Island Park Friday evening. According to Idaho Fish and Game Spokesman Gregg Losinski, the bear was shot and then killed by the caretaker of the residence in Shotgun Valley. Losinski says no human injuries were reported. The bear had apparently visited the site previously and torn down a bird feeder to eat the seeds. The caretaker says because of that earlier bear activity, he was carrying a high-powered rifle while performing his chores. Losinski says this incident occurred only a few miles from the site where a grizzly attacked two habitat technicians August 15th, after being startled and charged. One individual received a bite to his thigh and backside, while the other had minor injuries to his hands. Biologists from the Idaho Department of Fish & Game took tissue samples from the shot bear to compare with samples taken from clothing worn at the earlier incident to determine if it was the same bear. Losinski says results are not expected back from the laboratory for some time.
