Conservation officers are looking for information on the dumping of three dead grizzly bears near Granisle.

Info sought on grizzly family dumping

Smithers Conservation officers seek information on the killing and dumping of a grizzly bear sow and two cubs near Granisle.

Smithers Conservation officers seek information from anyone who knows how a 400-pound grizzly bear sow and two cubs were shot and their bodies dumped near Granisle.

The dead bodies were discovered and reported to the tips line Sunday. The B.C. Wildlife Federation offers a reward of up to $2,000 for information that can help lead to a conviction.

Conservation Officer Flint Knibbs said the minimum charge that would be levied is killing wildlife not in open season, because cubs are never in open season. He said while a violation ticket could be issued, the seriousness of this case would likely mean it would go to court under the Wildlife Act.

Officer Knibbs said this is the first time in his six years on the job he has seen such a crime involving a family group.

People can anonymously reach the call centre any day at any time at 1-877-952-7277.
