    Good: Granddad shoots bear menacing daughter and four grandkids

    Granddad shoots bear menacing daughter and four grandkids

    PARKSVILLE A Parksville man shot and killed a large adult black bear that was menacing his daughter at her Parksville home Sunday. The woman was inside with her four children.

    The bear attempted to break into a bedroom window of the home and swatted at the dog on the porch, said State Department of Environmental Conservation spokeswoman Wendy Rosenbach.

    EnCon and State Police were called to the scene, but before they arrived, the woman called her father, who came over. He fired a warning shot, but the bear did not budge, so he shot and killed the animal.

    Rosenbach said the bear had been tagged and had been a nuisance to others before.

    No charges were filed against the man who shot the animal.

    Rosenbach had advice for people to help deter bears from wandering near their homes. Wash out trash cans with ammonia and put them out as close to garbage pickup as possible, and pay attention to where they hang birdfeeders as bears love them too.

    Good on Grandpa.

    How many chances to menace humans does a bear get in NY state before Fish & Wildlife kills the animal? There will be no more threats to humans from that bear.

    When people are home and a bear still attempts to enter the house...cannot be scared away (dangerous situation)...this leaves no choice but to end the the bear's curiousity...permanently.
    Grandpa to the rescue.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
