Police shoot, kill black bear in Easton

Quote:
Police contacted the Pennsylvania Game Commission shortly after receiving earlier reports of the bear sightings but were told no one from the commission could respond to the scene, he said.
What is up with that?
I guess they like weekends off too.

Man Black Bears near Easton. My wife and I were in the class of 05 from Lafayette, crazy to think of Black Bears in the area.

Regarding the weekend, it is Spring Gobbler season and all say, and possibly the vacancies with WCOs that are only being filled now.

Re: Police shoot, kill black bear in Easton

I am not sure you could call this a bear?
Maybe an 1/8 of a bear?
And this is a threat to residents (Check picture)?
I wonder where mamma is at?

Make that a BIG PLUS 3.... How much threat could a cub be.. Remind's me of the one in Jersey last spring that invaded a camp site... But I think that bear is still alive

Re: Police shoot, kill black bear in Easton

If you look in the comments of the WFMZ article even the Mayor of Easton (Panto) is chiming in. Sounds like they killed it because they couldn't get anyone from the PGC to come out?

And they want to add additional Sundays to hunting seasons?

10 to 1 the cop who shot it doesn't hunt. What harm could that cub have done. I would hope that behide the scenes the Pgc is chewing on some butt.

Re: Police shoot, kill black bear in Easton

I would hope the PGC is doing something to try and smooth this one over cuz the animal loving types are going nutz. This was the hot topic at work today and the bulk of folks were not blaming just the cops.
