“The bear was no longer fearful of humans, and was not easily scared off,” the DNR’s Mark Sargent said in a statement. “The bear was trapped, tranquilized, and humanely euthanized on Saturday.”
The bear is now at the Wildlife Disease Laboratory for testing.
It was not immediately clear where the animal was caught.
