IDFG Looking For Info On Shooting Of Key Sow Grizzly

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is putting out word that it’s looking for information on a grizzly illegally shot in the far northern Panhandle two months ago.

Officials say the sow was killed near Spruce Lake, which is near where the borders of Idaho, Montana and British Columbia come together in northern Boundary County, over Labor Day Weekend.

“Grizzly bears are protected by both state and federal law and the loss of a breeding female is a major setback to the great bear’s recovery in the Cabinet-Yaak Ecosystem,” a statement from the state agency says.

Anyone with information on the case is being asked to call Senior Conservation Officer Brian Johnson at (208) 267-4085.
