I suppose the idiot parents in the next site at Tunnel Mountain last week figured they had a way to deal with the wildlife. They gave their 9 or 10-year-old kid a bow and arrow. He was chasing ground squirrels with it--luckily he didn't hit any before someone called the ranger. I could not believe that.
I use to go and watch Grizz #64 a few years ago.
Then she was hit by a CN train and hers cubs were sent to the Calgary zoo. just like bear #56
Now back in the day when they started taging and numbering the bears I was told that the number will not be reused if the bear dies....did that change? or are they mistaken on the #
