A female grizzly bear was captured after going on a predatory spree, killing more than 70 sheep around Montana in a two week period.
The sow slaughtered sheep throughout ranches within a 20-mile radius of Great Falls, Mont. None of the sheep appeared to have been killed by the cub travelling with her, and only two sheep appear to have actually been eaten.
“Sometimes the predatory instinct of grizzly bears just kicks in and they go to killing livestock,” Carol Bannerman, public affairs specialist with the U.S.D.A.’s Wildlife Services told FoxNews.com. She explained that it isn’t clear why the bear went on the rampage.
