Grizzly bear euthanized after killing domestic sheep near Lincoln


MISSOULA, Montana — State wildlife officials euthanized a 425-pound male grizzly bear after it killed domestic sheep near Lincoln for the second time in four years.

Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials say the bear was killed on Sunday, three days after federal wildlife officials confirmed the rancher's report that a bear had killed some of his sheep.

The bear had an ear tag that identified it as one that had killed three sheep in the same location in 2012. It was relocated to the South Fork of the Flathead River after the 2012 depredation.
