Question is......I am witnessing a bear trying to get in my pen after my livestock. Am I legally able to protect them from this bear my distroying it. The bear has been around 3 times and has once opened up a section of fencing and alowing one to get out. You could see where, on the outside of the fenced in area, the bear had him , from the hair, but he got away and we retrieved the animal a couple days latter. The PGC has been notified and came out and verified that in fact it was a bear. Now that you know this info, Can I kill him if I SEE him trying to get in the fence?
