EVERGREEN, Colo. (CBS4) – An Evergreen man is facing several charges after shooting at a mother bear and her two cubs, killing the cubs. After the cubs were shot the mother bear spent all day Tuesday in a nearby tree.
The man, who hasn’t been identified, shot at the bears early Tuesday morning in the 27000 block of Lupine Drive. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said they received a call about 5:15 a.m. that a man had shot at the bears.
The homeowner and his family were awakened by three bears, a mother bear and two cubs, going through their trash outside. The man fired two rubber buckshot rounds at the bears to scare them off.
The final bullet also went through a neighbor’s window.
