Black Bear Hunter Bags Grizzly in Idaho

There have been no confirmed reports of grizzly bears in north-central Idaho's Selway-Bitterroot ecosystem is 60 years. That is until this September 3, when a Tennessee man on a guided black bear hunt shot a young 400- to 500-pound grizzly that came to the bait. "It was dark-colored with golden silver tips," the USFWS's Chris Servheen told the Missoulan. "It was very visibly a grizzly bear. The hunter was very regretful. It was shot in a place where he wasn't expecting to encounter a grizzly."
