"I wasn't really sure what to do about the situation," Dowler said from his Vancouver hospital bed. "I largely stood there, and let the grizzly keep walking up towards me." Concerned of making...

    British Columbia on Monday banned all grizzly bear hunting in the western Canadian province with immediate effect, expanding on its existing ban on trophy hunting. In August, the provincial government had said it would end trophy hunting of the bears but allow hunting for meat. Consultations with First Nations, other stakeholder groups and the public in recent months showed that “it is abundantly clear that the grizzly hunt is not in line with their values,” said Doug Donaldson, the province’s minister of forests and lands, in a statement on Monday.

They didn’t get very far on the Cascade Ampitheatre Trail. “We just made it to the trailhead and walked around a corner, and the bear was maybe 20 feet away,” Campbell said. They backed slowly out...
