Girdwood brown bear killed by Fish and Game
A brown bear believed to be involved in weeks of garbage-related calls in Girdwood was killed Thursday evening by state officials.
The unaccompanied sow was captured Thursday evening in a live trap behind the Girdwood Picnic Club restaurant, Fish and Game’s Ken Marsh said, before it was euthanized.
“The bear's been tipping dumpsters and has been defeating bear-resistant (trash) mechanisms,” Marsh said. “We suspect it's the same bear that's been tipping dumpsters at Our Lady of the Snows Chapel.”
