Colorado residents upset after bear found dead in front yard
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Residents of a Colorado Springs community are upset after a bear was found shot to death in the front yard of a home.
Residents in Cheyenne Mountain Estates say the bear roamed the area and was part of their lives.
“It’s really disappointing because he was such a part of our lives up here,” said resident Nick Bonck, according to KKTV. “That’s the reason you live up here on the mountain … to live around the animals. ”
The 400-pound bear was found dead Friday.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife says the person who shot the bear could be fined up to $20,000.
