Man Shoots Grizzly @ — Rose Lake?!

Item: Elk farmer shoots grizzly in N. Idaho: Man near Rose Lake says he mistook endangered animal for black bear/Becky Kramer, SR

More Info: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife service is investigating the shooting of a grizzly bear near Rose Lake. The 300-pound male grizzly was shot dead late Sunday by the operator of an elk farm who told game officers that he mistook the grizzly for a black bear. “He said the bear had killed one of his elk. … He was looking to protect the rest of his herd,” said Chip Corsi, regional supervisor for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. “Rose Lake is not a place here you’d expect to see a grizzly bear.”

Question: Ah, am I the only one that's nervous that a grizzly bear was roaming around Rose Lake (about 25 miles east of Coeur d'Alene)?
