Even bears understand the need to stay away after being shot in New York. Also, the New York State town of Bearsville is living up to its own name.

A bear and her cubs, destroyed a family home in Bearsville, New York, several times earlier this month.

The Knowles family arrived home on July 13, to discover that the kitchen had been ransacked by bears. Later, they went out for dinner and returned home to find their home shattered again.

They cleaned up the mess and went out the next day. They returned at night to find the house destroyed again by the bears.

Wildlife specialists of the State of New York decided that the mother bear was now a nuisance and should be killed. They fired two shots into the bear, but missed. She and her cubs got the message and have not returned since.
