Banff National Park Second Grizzly Death in a Month
A female grizzly was struck and killed by a train in Banff National Park. There was no grain around where she died, nor was there any in her stomach when a necropsy was done. Grain is one reason bears will hang around train tracks, but not in this case. The female grizzly leaves behind two yearling cubs.
Earlier in May a large male grizzly was struck on the Trans-Canada Highway. From The Vancouver Sun.
