A young, Bird Creek grizzly bear that concluded the easiest way to obtain salmon was to take them from fishermen is dead. 

Chugach State Park chief ranger Ben Corwin shot the bear Saturday after pepper spray proved ineffective in driving it away from a hugely popular fishery along the Seward Highway.

Problems with the grizzly along the angler-lined creek have been increasing for several days, Corwin said in a telephone interview. Despite approaching people to within 10 feet and being pepper sprayed, he said, the bear just didn’t want to retreat to the closed-to- fishing and angler-free part of the creek only about 400 yards upstream from a highway bridge that regularly thunders with traffic.
