San Bernardino County
A homeowner shoots two bears, killing one, a yearling, and injuring another. The homeowner told deputies that he was forced to shoot the bear out of concern for his friend, who was outside when the yearling and two other bears approached. The bears were apparently rummaging through trash in the back of a pickup truck. The shooting has outraged residents, who say part of living in the forest community is dealing with the bears. Tom McIntosh of Gilmore Real Estate said the trash should never have been left out in the first place. The man with the rifle will likely face charges of "unlawful take of a bear" and unlawful trash storage.
