A brown bear which had reportedly become a garbage bear was killed by Alaska Department of Fish and Game biologists Wednesday.

Fish and Game spokesman Ken Marsh said the sow was killed shortly after 5 a.m. Wednesday at the Birchwood Camp in Chugiak. Marsh said the sow had three yearling cubs which ran into the woods once their mother was shot.

According to Marsh, Fish and Game had been getting reports for several weeks about the sow and her cubs getting into garbage in the Eagle River/Chugiak area.
