MA:Handgun Defense against Black Bear

WEST SPRINGFIELD - A Sikes Avenue man shot and killed a black bear with single pistol-shot to the head Friday night after it started to go after his small dog, police said.


"He went outside and saw the bear," Ryan said, adding that it likely weighed more than 250 pounds. "He made a few attempts to scare the bear off. It didn't work and the bear started to go after the dog."

The bear got to within a few feet of the dog and the homeowner then shot it once, just above the right eye.
