This happened one town over from me.

The shooter (a cop) had complained that a bear got in to his chicken coup and killed chickens. In CT bears are protected. You are NOT allowed to shoot them. You ARE allowed to up up barbed wire, or an electric fence, or something. He wanted the bear killed or relocated.

Next we here he shot the bear 7 times and orphaned two small cubs. Being a cop he knew how to testiLIE and claimed the bear charged his grandson.

Of course that doesn't explain why he was walking around his rural back yard packing heat, or why he let his grandson out to play where he recently saw bears. I sort of wonder if he yelled "It's coming right for us" before opening fire.

The lying sack of shiat will probably get away with it too.

Fortunately they just announced that they have captured the two cubs.

To be fair, if it had been a grizzly bear, the cop would have been mauled to death as soon as he got off his first shot.

The only grizzly bears in Connecticut are in zoos.

lol at the moron who thought the bear was her neighbor because it was raiding her birdfeeder.

Am I the only one who does this? It's free nutrition and I love sunflower seeds.

"We used to see her in the backyard, at the bird feeder."

Congratulations. You are a dumb ass. (replace bird with bear).

How is this a political story?

Ridgefield police confirmed one of their officers who was off-duty at the time was involved in the shooting but did not provide additional details.

the use of the passive voice around LEOs is beginning to give me a dyspepsia.  remember, it's never Your cop discovered in the airport luggage x-ray, it's A cop discovered in the airport luggage x-ray.  weird how all this evil shiat seems to keep just happening around these good officers.  is it a curse?  PRAY FOR OUR OFFICERS THEY ARE UNDER ATTACK BY A CURSE (probly from a gay thug in a dress)
thanks SpectroBoyfor the update on the cubs :(

Cubs are captured and headed to a wildlife rehab center.

Bobbi was a local celebrity. She had numbered ear tags so we all knew when we saw her. I saw her walk past my home office window once.

These are her cubs.

Yeah the cops are trying to keep it quiet, but there are too many angry citizens who loved Bobbi.
The cop's name and address are now well known locally.

Wait, you're raiding birdfeeders, or you're feeding animals?

Assuming the latter, the problem is that feeding wild animals gets them habituated to humans, and also causes them to associate humans with food. Which then increases the chance of an attack, if the wild animals in question are predators.

/and assuming the former, looking forward to the day you make Fark

I like the suet cakes myself, great for fattening up for the winter, and in delicious peanut, berry, and mealworm flavors. Hard to eat them through the little cages, though.

Was he dealing drugs again? That's no reason to shoot, don't hate the player hate the game. Rip Smokey
