VANCOUVER – A male grizzly bear, that was the subject of two public alerts in the Squamish area, has now been trapped and relocated.

The 600 lb bear was trapped on Sunday night and relocated to an unknown destination.

WildSafeBC, who issued the two alerts, wanted to thank the public who called the Conservation Officer hotline to track and safely trap the bear.

The grizzly was reported travelling between the area west of the Squamish airport, across Highway 99 and east toward the Mashiter Trail network.

In addition, the trap that was set out for a black bear that attacked a dog on July 13 has now been removed due to no further bear activity.

Report wildlife sightings or encounters to the Conservation Officer Service 24 hour hotline at: 1-877-952-7277 (RAPP).
