COQUITLAM, B.C. - Conservation officers in Metro Vancouver have shot and killed two black bears that were biting and clawing ferociously at each other outside a suburban house.

RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung says police and conservation officers arrived at a home near Burke Mountain, in Coquitlam, on Monday night after receiving a call from a resident who said there were two bears fighting on his driveway.

Chung says the caller added that there was blood everywhere, and when conservation officers arrived, they found one bear with a bloody face and shot it.

The other bear was found at the back of the property, and was also killed.

Chung says it's believed the two male bears were fighting over a female bear.

The fight was captured on a home video, but no one was hurt.
