NC Activists Angered By Killing Of 3-Legged Bear

A skinny, three-legged black bear had become a fixture at an upscale housing community deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, rummaging through trash cans and playfully ambling along the golf course

After the bear started breaking into homes looking for food, once stealing two pies from a kitchen counter, some people had enough. Wildlife advocates scrambled to find a sanctuary for the animal, but time ran out: in August, the bear was shot and killed by management.

That bear's death in Mountain Air, about 35 miles north of Asheville, has become a flashpoint for outraged wildlife advocates who say the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission needs to find non-lethal ways to handle so-called nuisance bears.

Maybe the animal huggers should have stepped up to the plate and made him one of theirs' house pet to sleep with! That would have prevented this "tragedy"! In nature, the 3 legged will become the target of wolves anyway. Get real. We just proceeded with mother nature to protect ourselves. Get over it.

I'll take in a 3 legged bear into my yard before I'd take in Obama.
