FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) -- A pair of Michigan hunters will pay thousands of dollars for illegally killing a grizzly bear.

Mark lives in Mio in Oscoda County.
His mother is from Shelby Township.
The pair admitted to the hunting violations, including killing a bear out of season.
Between the two of them - they will be paying about $55,000 in fines to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
