BOULDER, Colo. — Wildlife officers had reports of a bear getting into trash in Eben G. Fine Park Monday.
“Accessible trash led this bear to the behavior of entering homes today. Bear-proofing saves the lives of bears—everyone needs to do their part!” says Jennifer Churchill of Colo. Parks and Wildlife.
The reports of a bear that had entered two homes came at mid-morning Tuesday. Officers treed the bear and the decision was made to tranquilize and then euthanize it.
When bears start entering homes, it becomes a public safety issue and they must be put down.
Residents are warned that they need to bear-proof there trash and homes.
This bear was 2-years-old and weighed about 90 pounds.AlertMe
