FWP investigating grizzly shooting

(THOMPSON FALLS)- Wardens with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks are looking into the report of a grizzly being killed in an act of self defense near Thompson Falls over the weekend. 

FWP reports the shooting happened Sunday in the Lower Thompson River area in Sanders County. The male grizzly was killed by a person who immediately reported the shooting to authorities. The case remains under investigation. 

Grizzlies are a protected species and shooting one can result in charges, although some exceptions are made in cases of self-defense and safety, depending on the circumstances.
