Boo the Grizzly Bear on the Loose
Boo the grizzly bear is missing! Could it be that love is in the air? Boo a nine year old grizzly has been in captivity since he was a cub. It is spring time in the Rockies, and Boo dug out from his enclosure. He has been missing since Saturday and there is speculation that there may be a female grizzly in the area that Boo could not resist.
Boo has escaped from his home twice in the past. After those attempts he was neutered in hopes that would keep him settled down. His first escape, he dug under the fence after a female grizzly, he was caught and brought back. After his second escape he came back on his own in search of food. A big concern for a captive bear in the wild is that he doesn't have wild bear skills. Kicking Horse Mountain Resort is in the mountains, almost 9 miles to the closest town, and close to the British Columbia/Alberta border. Officials have been looking for Boo, using helicopters, but no luck yet. From CBC News Canada.
