Human interaction has forced two grizzlies to be put to death.
The two young bears had taken up residence along Hwy37 near Kitimat.
Conservation officers and Kitimat RCMP officers went to an area just south of the Kitimat River bridge after receiving calls regarding the two bears.
According to a June 3 RCMP news release, the bears were already showing signs of habitation due to public interaction.
The bears had been seen opening coolers and approaching campers.
Motorists have been stopping to photograph the animals for a few weeks now since the bears were first sighted hanging around close to Hwy37.
This has led to complaints of road blockage as vehicles pulled over to view the grizzlies.
The news release also stated that one of the bears had been recently struck by a vehicle and sustained severe injury to one of its front legs.
Conservation officers has previously warned that the practice of feeding bears reduces their fear of humans, which in turn makes them a danger to humans.
This leaves destroying the animals one of the few options left.
