    Some of the comments below the article are more interesting than the story. "Hayseed Alaska hicks with big guns and no brains" are shooting the poor bears for breaking into their homes...

    Kenai police kill 3 brown bears after home invasion


    The Associated Press

    (07/04/10 22:43:59)

    KENAI -- Kenai police have killed a brown bear and her two cubs after the sow tried to enter one home and actually got into another.Police say a resident reported that a bear was trying to get into the eastside home early Saturday morning, pushing against the front door.

    A responding officer scared the bear off. A while later, the officer saw the sow and cubs eating trash in the yard of a home on a nearby street.

    The sow had broken through a screen door and pulled the garbage outside.

    The officer saw the sow circle around the house and go back inside for more trash, and then stick her nose through the entry a third time.

    Police chief Gus Sandahl said the bears were shot shortly after.

    What do you do with a brown bear cub? It isn't like zoos are clamoring for bears. They'll starve without the mother, so they just put them down.
