975 Pound Grizzly Bear Houston British Columbia

The photo was taken on November 20, 2015 at Houston, B.C.
Outdoor photos from around British Columbia, Photos by Brian Vike.
I have been trying to get a good picture of the Grizzly bear that is on display in Houston, 
but seeing it is in a glass enclosure, there is always a reflection to deal with,
but on November 20, 2015 my wife and I stopped by the 
 Visitors Centre and we managed to take a decent photo.
The Grizzly bear that is on display in the Houston’s, Visitors Centre 
was one of two bear which were given the name of “Phantom Bears”.
These two Grizzly bears were stalking and killing a lot of livestock
around the Hungry Hill area just outside of Houston, British Columbia. 
One of the bears is on display at the Smithers, B.C. airport, and the other here in Houston.
The Houston bear is approximately 18 - 22 years old, weighs
in at 975 pounds and when the bear is standing, it was 11 feet tall.
The below maps show where you can find Houston’s and Smither’s Grizzly bears.
