Houston, British Columbia’s Visitor’s Centre.

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. Today, 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. Again, this bear is on display at the 
Houston Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Centre.
