Bear Shot After Breaking Into North Carolina Home – Defensive Gun Use of the Day

From the Charlotte Observer: “A rare home invasion by one of North Carolina’s black bears started when the animal ‘broke through a garage door’ and began dragging food out of a deep freeze in the garage, reports the Highlander newspaper.” Not rare enough, evidently.

The garbage-scarfing bear wasn’t satisfied with the pickings in the garage and found a way inside to investigate what the homeowner had on hand in his pantry and fridge.

That’s where it was shot by a man who only later learned he had killed a mama bear with cubs not far away, state officials say.

A shame, but black bears aren’t anything to mess with. Especially when they’re inside your house. Something that seems to happen regularly in this particular address.

Jennifer Royce, community manager of Highlands Falls Community Association, told the Highlander it was “the third time the bear had entered the home.”She says it was a caretaker who killed it, the newspaper reported. Royce was out of the office Friday and could not be reached by the Charlotte Observer.
