This is the second grizzly bear that was captured in Squamish this month.
On September 10, COS captured and relocated a grizzly bear that was seen foraging in the Garibaldi Estates neighbourhood.
“Relocation is only a temporary solution when wildlife attractants are present,” district says.
“Relocated bears will often return to the location from which they were removed if wildlife attractants, such as domestic fruit trees, are not managed.”
The Conservation service will brief the District of Squamish staff in a meeting today.
