Exotic Animal Incident Report

Reported: Jun 07, 2012
Location: Nevada County, California

Animal: Bear
Animal Disposition: dead

Facility Type: Exotic Pet
Facility Name: unknown

Category: Injury to animal, Injury to animal by human, Animal Death, Animal Death by human
Species: Bear

Summary: A man was trying to sell or give away two bear cubs displayed at a gas station. The man claimed he shot the mother in self defense when the family of bears came onto his property. The man claims the mother bear ran away after being shot. Although officials found blood on the property, they could not find the bear and she is presumed dead. CA Fish and Game officials are trying to validate the man's story. The cubs were confiscated by Fish and Game and will be rehabilitated, hopefully to be released back into the wild. They are thought not to be ideal candidates because they have now been around humans.
