A deadly year for wildlife in Rocky Mountain parks

It’s been a deadly year so far for wildlife in the national and provincial parks of the Rocky Mountains. In all, 10 bears have been killed at the hands of humans in Banff, Kootenay and Yoho national parks, and three of those were grizzly bears hit by cars of trains. And while not dead, another grizzly is lost from the local population after it was relocated to a more remote region of Alberta for killing a sheep dangerously close to where children were sleeping at Camp Chief Hector in Bow Valley Provincial Park.
