Relocated Black Bear killed

by Alpinist » Fri May 04, 2012 9:42 pm

The black bear that was tranquilized by police, famously fell out of that tree, and relocated last week was hit by a car and killed yesterday. Bummer. :(
"The Denver Post reports that the 208-pound black bear had wandered into the Denver-bound lanes of U.S. highway 36 when a vehicle struck it at 5:40 Thursday morning"

One way or the other it was going to die. Had it shown up in town again, DOW would have put it down. Critters only get one free relocate, then its lead poisoning.

Too many people, me thinks.

Yup, stuff dies sometimes. Sad that if this was a mountain lion people would be screaming KILL IT, KILL IT NOW and it would be relocated in a hole. Lucky bear, I guess
