Huge Problem Bears In Colorado, Nevada

Bear Hunting Magazine

ASPEN An unusually large black bear topping 425 pounds was killed by Colorado Division of Wildlife officers Wednesday after it was trapped for busting through windows to enter an east Aspen house.

Wildlife officers said they had no choice but to euthanize the bruin because it physically smashed into the house rather than entered through an unsecured window or door. Click the link below for more information:

In Nevada an even larger bear was causing problems.

Residents in the Rubicon and Freels Peak areas of Incline Village are responsible for police shooting and killing a 660-pound bear Thursday morning, a Nevada Department of Wildlife official said.

Nevada Department Of Wildlife and Washoe County Sheriff's deputies shot the bear numerous times with shotguns about 8:30 a.m. Thursday, said Carl Lackey, NDOW biologist, after a NDOW "bear dog" roused it from underneath a deck at 843 Freels Peak Drive.
