All the stories I’ve read recently about bears seems to end in the unnecessary death of the bear. In Minnesota, a black-bear had gotten its head stuck in a 2 1/2 gallon jar, presumably while rummaging for food. For six days, wildlife officials tried to capture the bear but ended up shooting it when the bear wandered into a festival in the city of Frazee. If the bear’s mouth was covered by the jar, it probably was not as large of a threat. It seems officials dealing with black bears are often a little trigger-happy and do not reserve killing the bear just for when it is a clear threat to people. Although, in this case, the bear could not eat or drink and was likely suffering from dehydration and hunger. I still wish the jar could have been removed and for the bear to go back to its normal life.
