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.
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.
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.
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.
