Visitors watched aghast as a black bear cub squeezed under a fenced enclosure atop Grouse Mountain recently and was summarily killed by the resort’s two captive grizzlies.
“It got under the fence and Grinder and Coola do what happens in nature,” Grouse Mountain spokeswoman Sarah Lusk confirmed. “Whether he was an orphan and he was hungry and there was food around, we don’t know.
“If the bears had met in the wild, the same thing would have happened. Black bears and grizzlies are mortal enemies and nature took its course.”
