A necropsy performed on a mother bear, who was euthanized earlier this week in Colorado Springs, helps explain her erratic behavior. The bear was captured and put down after wildlife officials determined that she was suffering.

The necropsy on her body afterwards provided sad details of the sow’s suffering. According to Colorado Parks and Wildlife, the bear’s stomach was full of human discarded food and garbage. The wildlife agency described what was found, stating that there was:

“raw chicken, potato, a cigarette butt, aluminum foil, pickle, a french fry, hamburger wrapper, paper towels, birdseed, beans, fruit, butter wrappers, pen cap, strawberry preserves packets.”

The necropy’s sad findings

The bear was suffering from more than a stomach full of garbage – someone had shot her in the face with a pellet rifle and she also had a tumor growing in her nasal cavity. It is believed that the mother bear was shot in the face on the same day of her “erratic” behavior.

Wildlife officials believe that the bear’s cubs were old enough to survive on their own and they were released into the mountains.
