After checking around and making a call or two as of last night the bear
is under close surveillance.  F&G suspects there may be a cub or two
associated with the grizzly and they are not in too much of a hurry to
do anything.  F&G had to relocate a grizzly that was eating from garbage
cans in nearby Sterling, they considered that bear far more of a threat
than the Homer grizzly.  
The Homer bear has returned to the scene of the kill a couple of times
but the bear moved on each time.   
If I hear of anything new I will let you know.

An article in USA Today reported about a grizzly bear in Homer, Alaska
had killed a full grown moose, dragged it a ways down a driveway, broke
the moose's heart and ate it and then left the area...only to return
later to finish its meal.  But, by then, the F&G had come by, taken the 
remains to a local village (SOP for this type of thing) and the bear
from what I was told, being sought out as a potential hazard to the 
homeowners in the area.

Chris, if you see this, can you enlighten the V2020 if the bear was
caught and what its outcome may have been?

BTW, the homeowners filmed it and have portions of the film on

WARNING - this is very graphic.  If you have a weak stomach, you may not

wish to watch any part of the film.

This is one reason my family and I left Alaska...too many close calls
like this one.
