Washington scientists studying sick grizzly

January 17th, 2014 in Biology / Ecology

Scientists at Washington State University are treating a 3-year-old female grizzly bear that has been suffering seizures.

The bear named "Lucy" came from Montana Grizzly Encounter in Bozeman, Mont.

The bear was brought to Washington State University on Thursday after suffering two grand mal seizures last week for no apparent reason. Since then she has become more aggressive and lethargic at the same time.

Scientists at WSU conducted an MRI evaluation of her head and neck, looking for a case. The bear will undergo a complete examination and diagnostic work-up.
