Someone shot a BC grizzly bear with an arrow and the animal is still roaming around the forest with the broken-off bolt sticking out of its head.
The BC Conservation Officer Service shared a photo of the bear on Wednesday, urging anyone who sees it to call them.
The bear was spotted near Smithers, BC along Highway 37 just north of the Meziadin junction.
Can you help?

According to BC’s hunting and trapping regulations, it’s also unlawful to injure an animal and not report it to a conservation officer.
