Conservation officer Jack Trudgian says the amount of blood at the scene indicates the bear suffered a serious wound.
Jim Clark, the farmer who shot the bear, says he hit the bear in the shoulder with a .22 calibre rifle.
The small calibre rifle wouldn't normally inflict a serious injury to such a large bear, but Trudgian believes the bullet may have hit an artery.
There have been a number of bear sightings in the area, near Surrey's Tynehead Park, in recent days. But Trudgian says residents have all described seeing a smaller younger bear.
Conservation officers have set up a trap in the park, and Trudgian says they are monitoring the situation.
A smaller bear was trapped in the park on Tuesday and relocated.
