A grizzly bear attack in Alberta’s Banff National Park resulted in the death of two individuals and their dog, according to Canadian park officials and a friend of the victims. Parks Canada received an alert on Friday night indicating a bear attack in the Red Deer River Valley. The bear was euthanized due to its aggressive behavior. The victims were identified as a Canadian couple and their dog. Kim Titchener, the founder of Bear Safety and More, stated that while bear encounters are increasing, fatal attacks are rare. She emphasized the importance of educating people about bear safety. Bear sightings are more common in autumn as they search for food before hibernation. Banff National Park is home to both grizzly and black bears, with the grizzly bear population considered threatened in Alberta. Parks Canada’s rescue team had to travel by ground due to weather conditions and discovered the deceased individuals upon arrival. An area closure has been implemented, and Parks Canada has not released the victims’ identities.
