KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - State wildlife officials are investigating a report that someone shot a male grizzly bear in self-defense.

Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials say the bear was shot in the Lower Thompson River area northeast of Thompson Falls on Oct. 26. The person who shot the grizzly reported the shooting.

FWP spokesman John Fraley says no other information is being released because the shooting is still under investigation.

Grizzly bears are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act.
