A young bear that had been snooping around homes and killing chickens northeast of Cortez was euthanized Friday by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. The Journal reports the bear entered a dog kennel in Arriola and swiped at a homeowner who tried to pull the dogs out of the pen, causing a minor scratch. Wildlife officers then tracked and shot the animal. The Journal reports the bear had been visiting the same two or three homes in recent days and officers had tried unsuccessfully to trap it.
