Bear Aware

Revelstoke RCMP were called to a destroy a bear this week.

Corporal Thomas Blakney has word on the call from Tuesday, saying "We received a call from the Conservation Service, advising that a black bear had attacked and killed a donkey at the Selkirk Saddle Club, in the 1400 block of Airport Way."

Blakney says that not much more could be done "The likelihood of the bear returning to kill other animals was very high, so those kind of measures had to be taken."

Conservation staff will continue to investigate.
