JUNEAU- A Department of Fish and Game biologist says a young grizzly killed by a sport utility vehicle in a Juneau neighborhood had been feeding on garbage.

Stephanie Sell says the contents of the brown bear's stomach included broccoli and crayons.
The bear was struck just before 7 a.m. Tuesday on Glacier Highway in Lemon Creek between downtown Juneau and the Mendenhall Valley.
The woman driver was not injured.
Sell says the 300-pound bear was 2 to 4 years old. Its hide was salvaged.
Sell says finding garbage in the bear's stomach is a reminder that not all bears are hibernating and that residents should keep trash contained and secure.
