Two troublesome Fairbanks bears killed

Two young grizzlies that showed up on Chena Hot Springs Road last week were shot Sunday. Department of Fish and Game spokeswoman Cathie Harms says Alaska State Troopers were called after the yearling bears killed two goats at a family farm near Mile 4. The grizzlies were the 9th and 10th killed this summer in the Fairbanks area. Harms says that’s unusually high, and encourages people to take extra precautions with anything that can attract bears, from garbage to barbeques and livestock.
