CO: Campers fire Rifle to Drive off Bear
The campers -- who had dogs with them -- said the small, "scruffy" bear continued to come back and eat food outside their tent, and they felt threatened. The man then fired a shot with a .308 rifle at the bear to scare it off while it was about 15 yards away.
Churchill said rangers do not believe the bear was hit, as there was no blood trail.
