Very sad. I wonder if they had to put the bear down. It looks like it's been fed by people and therefore, not afraid.

Sarah, this is my hometown and the bear was not put down. Bear sightings happen often in our area because the forest is so close to neighborhoods on that side of town. The only reason they may be fed in our area is due to trash being left out by those not knowing any better or being irresponsible. Either way, the bears are not hurt for it.
