Newton The Bear

  • Birth unknown
  • Death 2 Jun 2013 Newton, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
  • Burial Unknown
  • Memorial ID 112196994

*** I named this unknown bear Newton for the Massachusetts town he was in when he was killed by Environmental Police. Many people were disturbed by this senseless death. They say it could have been handled another way since the bear was just frightened and sitting in a tree and that this beautiful young bear did not need to die.

The bear shot and killed by Environmental Police in Newton Sunday morning was about a year old and weighed 125-pounds.

The young male walking down the railroad tracks climbed a tree next to the MassPike around 6:30 a.m. Police shot and killed the animal from a Fire Department ladder truck after failing to tranquilize it.

They say killing the bear was necessary because it could have fallen onto the roadway.
