British Columbia (AP) — Canadian conservation officers have
euthanized a black bear that ate the remains of a convicted murderer.
Columbia Environment Minister Terry Lake said Monday the bear’s
description matched that of one seen guarding a cache that contained the
remains of Rory Wagner, 54. Examinations of fur at the scene as well as
teeth and claw marks confirmed the bear that was euthanized is the one
that ate the remains.
Lake said the animal was put down because bears remember food sources.
