Spring grizzly hunt cancelled in Alberta for 
fifth year in a row

There won’t be a grizzly bear hunt again this spring, the Alberta government said today.

Alberta’s grizzly bears are a threatened species and there hasn’t been a hunt in the province since 2006. Darcy Whiteside, Alberta Sustainable Development spokesperson, said when there’s a harvestable population then the province will re-examine the issue.
