Cannibal grizzly Split Lip likely gobbled smaller bear due to food stress


A Parks Canada wildlife specialist says he suspects a 250-kilogram grizzly gobbled down a smaller grizzly because … he was really, really hungry.

Steve Michel, a human-wildlife conflict specialist with Banff National Park, says staff discovered the carnage last month after a radio collar was lost by Bear No. 136, nicknamed Split Lip because of a massive scar on his mouth.
