The bear, known by some San Antonio Heights residents as "Boo Boo," was shot and killed by a San Bernardino County Sheriff's deputy on the Upland side of 24th Street around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Sigh.

Humans can be so simple minded. Violence is almost always the first, last, and only option that pops into their minds. We put our houses right up next to their homes and habitats, then it's their fault when they wander the wrong direction. I just can't agree with doing this.

Yea, it was "coming at him" by the deputy's memory. Of course, everyone else saw him chasing the poor bear in his squad car and heard it screaming in pain as he ran. Dogs and bears are of the same evolutionary line, and both are rather smart. He knew what was going on as he was gunned down.

I think you'll find, with the big fires down there, many animals are going to appear that the city slickers haven't seen before.

No reason to panic and bring out the pistol. Many better uses for that.

More to the point: there's no reason for a cop to start firing away in a residential area just because a bear caused him to soil his pants!
