Pair of British Columbia Nuisance Black Bears Killed by Officers [VIDEO]

Two brazen black bears were shot and killed after breaking through fences and trying to pry open doors.

Conservation officers shot and killed a pair of large black bears earlier this week after it was deemed the animals posed too great a risk to humans.

It is believed the pair of black bears were lured into Port Coquitlam, British Columbia by fruit trees. A severe drought this summer has made wild berries scarce for the bears, forcing them to relocate while searching for alternative food sources.


One bear, believed to weigh around 500 pounds, was not new to the neighborhood. It forced a school lockdown and road closures last year, before finally being chased from the city by officers.
