Black Bear ‘Destroyed’ After Killing Hikers’ Dog

A black bear was “destroyed” over the weekend in Canada’s Jasper National Park after the animal confronted a pair of hikers on a trail and killed one of their dogs in a predatory act, officials said.
The attack happened around 4 p.m. Saturday at the Alberta Park situated in the Canadian Rockies, as two hikers and their two dogs were returning to the trailhead on Wabasso Lake Trail, Parks Canada said.
The dogs were running freely between the hikers when they noticed a black bear had approached the trail, according to officials.
