Fairbanks, Alaska

From the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner of July 3, 2007

Two grizzlies shot on Chena Hot Springs Road

Two sibling grizzly bears were killed Sunday night within a half mile of each other on Chena Hot Springs Road, one by a state wildlife biologist responding to a report of two brazen bears in a woman’s yard, and the other by a homeowner who shot it after the bear tore a window out and ripped siding off his home.

The two shootings bring the number of nuisance grizzly bears killed in and around Fairbanks this season to eight, not counting another grizzly that was found dead from a gunshot wound, a case that state wildlife troopers are investigating.

The two bears were killed in the yards of residences at 19.5 Mile and 20 Mile on Chena Hot Springs Road, about 20 miles east of Fairbanks.
