Bear shot to death after breaking into home
A man shot a bear to death after it broke into his home in Colorado Springs.
The bear broke in through the back door of a home on Columbia court around 8 p.m. Friday night.
Colorado Springs police say the homeowner loaded his gun, after a roommate yelled that the bear had broken in. The bear roared at the homeowner several times, and went to a part of the house where it couldn't get out.
The man shot the bear 4 times, and it died. Division of Wildlife investigated, and say the homeowner was justified in the shooting.
