There was only one grizzly bear, says West Kootenay Conservation Officer Blair Thin.
He added, “This definitely was the bear everyone was calling about.”
The two-year old male grizzly was tranquilized in Tadanac last week and subsequently released in an undisclosed location. Thin supplied the following video of the bear’s release back into the wild:
