Kingman police officers have shot and killed a bear that wandered into town and tried to break into several homes and the local post office.
Police spokesman Sgt. Bob Fisk says the black bear was spotted on Thursday morning by residents and the police switchboard was soon flooded with calls.
Officers spotted the young bruin as it tried to break into a window at the post office, then tracked it as it went through alleys, climbed fences and tried to get into several homes. Fisk says the bear was very aggressive and was seen pushing on a home’s door.
Residents gathered to watch, and a police captain ordered officers to shoot it because of the danger to people. After being hit, the bear ran but was pinned in by a police cruiser before dying.
