A man out hunting near Lumby, B.C. shot and killed a grizzly bear after it went after his hunting dog and then for him. British Columbia Conservation officers ruled the shooting as justified.

According to the Conservation service, the man yelled at the grizzly when it went after his dog, it then turned and charged at him. The man was able to get off two shots from his rifle from around ten yards away, which caused the bear to run into the woods. Conservation officers found the 550 pound male grizzly the next day about 500 feet from the initial encounter area.
