Two people died in a grizzly bear attack in Banff National Park in the Canadian province of Alberta. In a statement made by the Canadian Parks Agency, which is responsible for national parks, it was stated that a warning was received from a GPS device last Friday night, and that the response team traveled to the region by land during the night because weather conditions did not allow the use of helicopters.

The statement said that the intervention team arrived at the scene in the early hours of the morning and that the team reached the lifeless bodies of two people who were attacked by the bear and euthanized the bear that exhibited aggressive behavior. The statement also announced that the area where the attack took place and its immediate surroundings were closed to visitors.

Banff National Park, which is visited by more than four million tourists every year, is home to both grizzly and black bears.
