A bear was “euthanized” by wildlife officials shortly after video was taken showing him lounging on a Colorado Spring homeowner’s couch. The bear entered the home on Sunday, and shortly thereafter, officials with Colorado Parks and Wildlife made the decision to kill him.
The wildlife agency Tweeted:
The blue tag in the bear’s ear means that he had shown little fear of humans in the past, reports CBS 4 News.
CPW District Wildlife Manager Cassidy English commented on the sad situation:
“It’s always a hard day when we have to euthanize a bear. Our mission is to protect wildlife. When bears become habituated to people, they can become a threat to public safety. This is why it is so important that our community works together to keep wildlife wild.”
