A wounded grizzly bear, which was later euthanized, rests Sunday in Soldotna. Biologist Jeff Selinger said the bear had at least three gunshot wounds, all of which were a few days old. Selinger said the bear was on its last legs and looking for a place to curl up and die when it drew a crowd of about 100 people with cameras and cell phones at about noon Sunday at Mackey Lake Road and the Sterling Highway. No one had reported a bear shot in defense of life or property.
