CO: Man Shoots, Kills, Bear in Self Defense at campsite

It appears this was a "problem bear" who was acclimated to humans.

BOULDER, Colo. — A man shot and killed a bear on Monday morning after it scavenged through his campsite and threatened him and his dog.

According to the police report, the bear tried to attack the dog before lunging at the owner.

"The bear got 10 to 15 yards away as it was running to him," said Jason Clay, the public information officer for Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

Officials said there are no charges being brought against the camper because he acted appropriately.
