Paralyzed Glacier National Park Grizzly Bear Euthanized
WEST GLACIER – On July 15 at approximately 11:30 pm, rangers discovered a partially paralyzed grizzly bear that had apparently fallen about 20 feet onto the road near Rim Rock, one mile west of Logan Pass.
The bear had sustained severe traumatic injuries. Rangers, after consulting with the park’s wildlife biologist, euthanized the bear.
The sow was estimated to be between five and seven years-old and was in good health, aside from the injuries from the fall.
