Aggressive Black Bear Killed By Rangers
-- A sheriff in Idaho just hit a black bear. So what you say? This is not an unusual thing. The thing is, that grizzly bears are increasing in numbers, and black bears are avoiding them by moving around more.
-- KIFI news television reported the story and included some interesting news about the Yellowstone and Teton bears that bears watching. In the story they note: that there may be territorial avoidance going on, and that black bears are finding new ways to survive. They also mention the bear that was captured and killed by rangers for being too aggressive in Yellowstone National Park.
-- The Yellowstone black bear charged several visitors and performed raids on campsites, stomped on cars, and broke into one car.
