    Homeowner shoots bear inside house

    By TATABOLINE BRANT
    Anchorage Daily News

    A large black bear broke into an Anchorage home early this morning, rummaged around like a burglar and feasted on a box of chocolates before the homeowner shot him dead with a Glock.

    The bear entered the two-story Stuckagain Heights house on the Anchorage hillside around 2:30 a.m., according to police.

    Stan Knowlton, who lives next door to the house, said his son and daughter-in-law own the place that was ransacked. They were asleep in their bedroom with their Rottweiller, Baby, when the dog started barking wildly, he said.

    The bedroom door was closed. Outside, the couple could hear things being knocked over.

    Police spokesman Lt. Paul Honeman said the owners initially thought the bear was a burglar. They could not be reached for comment.

    Knowlton said his son quickly determined the real identity of the intruder.

    "He opens the (bedroom) door and he's face to face with this big black bear," he said. "He slammed the door right away."

    Knowlton said his son hollered at the bear to go away and it ran downstairs. The man grabbed a .40-caliber Glock automatic handgun from another bedroom and looked around. The bear had knocked some things over and eaten a box of chocolates that had been sitting near the couch.

    "It left all the heart candy sitting in a basket there," Knowlton said.

    Knowlton said the bear started back up the stairs toward his son. He shot the animal multiple times and it went back downstairs.

    Knowlton said his son didn't know if the bear was dead. He called police. Honeman said the sergeant who responded quipped that he'd been in many a hairy situation over the years, but few so scary as entering a house where there might be a wounded bear on the loose.

    Officers found the bear dead in a bathroom, surrounded by a pool of blood and scat. Knowlton said state wildlife officials came and picked up the carcass. It took four people to load it into the truck, he said.

    It's pretty damn sad that these animals get killed because we build homes on their land :wtc:

    Some guy wrote a letter into Field & Stream saying that bears provide no real benefits and should be exterminated :hsugh:

    I'm not saying anyone was in the wrong. I'm just saying that it's a sad state of the world that this has to happen from time to time. He was killed because he was hungry and we built a house where he lives.

    If I move to a bear prone area I'm getting darts or something to try to not have to kill a bear. Bears are great.

    Seems like it'd still be a little cold in anchorage to be leaving your windows open over night. Just how does a bear wander in?
     
  17. I'd be confident against a bear with a .40 and defensive loads.

    It's like 70 degrees out during the day, and coldest during night is like 45. That's plenty warm, for us anyway. People have problems with them getting in trash, but that's usually about it.

    :ugh: I wouldn't

    We do a lot of bear hunting in Michigan, and a lot of hunters even question a .30-30 for getting the job done. I guess if the .40 was all I had thats what I would use. :dunno:
