Bear shot in Massachusetts after man was in fear of being attacked



A Massachusetts man has shot a bear after an incident that took place on Friday afternoon.

According to police, shortly before 3:00 p.m., the Kingston Police Department responded to Hawthorne Road for a report of a black bear attacking a resident’s livestock (goat).

Initial investigation appears to reveal that upon the bear attacking the resident’s goat, the resident attempted to scare the bear away. The bear postured up towards the resident and the resident reported he was in fear of being attacked. The resident then shot the bear with his lawfully owned firearm.

At that time, the bear fled into the wood line.

Upon police arriving, they were unable to locate the bear. KPD contacted the Massachusetts Environmental Police who are conducting an investigation and have been unable to locate the bear as of this time.
