Man shoots bear in Klamath Falls



KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — A bear that was chasing a Klamath Falls man’s dogs and acting aggressively was shot by the man early yesterday.

The man came outside after hearing the dogs around 5am, and saw the bear chasing his dogs around the property. The bear wouldn’t leave, and when the bear charged, the man shot it.

Authorities believe the male brown bear was getting into people’s garbage in the area. The bear was given to the Klamath Tribes, so they can honor it in a traditional ceremony.
