Please Don't Feed the Animals - News - Homeowner Kills Bear On His Porch Homeowner shoots bear on his front porch. Colorado Division of Wildlife blames area residents.
[Lucas Martin, district wildlife manager for Lake City,] had been told that some people in Lake City were intentionally feeding the bears and other wildlife and he even received reports that people had been seen petting the cubs.

"Feeding bears is illegal and it is dangerous for humans and the animals," Martin said.
It is not a good thing to make wild animals associate humans and food. It is not a good thing to reduce thier natural fear of us. "The DOW offers this reminder: A fed bear is a dead bear."

The only good news to come out of this story is that the 2 cubs were captured and will be raised and trained to survive in the wild.[KABA]
