A large adult male grizzly bear was struck and killed by a semi truck on Highway 83 near Condon in the early morning hours of September 6, 2016. The driver reported the collision to 911 at 6:15 am and FWP Warden Bill Koppen investigated.
Records show that this grizzly bear was previously captured for research purposes in 2006, 2008, and 2009, but was not wearing a radio-collar at the time of death. The 12-year-old bear was never captured for management purposes and was not known to have been involved in bear-human conflict. This is the first documented automobile mortality of a grizzly bear in the Northern Continental Divide Ecosystem during 2016. During 2004-2015, automobile collisions accounted for 0 to 6 documented mortalities annually, with an average of 1.7 per year.
