Female Grizzly and Two Yearlings Captured near Ferndale

07/28/2016

An adult female grizzly bear and her two yearlings were captured last week near Ferndale by FWP Grizzly Bear Management Specialist Tim Manley. Over the past two years the grizzly bears were known to have killed chickens, ducks, and rabbits. They also got into bird feeders, cat food, chicken and rabbit feed, and horse grain. In the last two months they also fed on waffles that had been put out to feed deer. After that, the bears began climbing up on porches and looking into windows. They also opened shed doors to gain access to livestock feed and deer that had been harvested.
