Garage attacking bear killed in Alaska

ANCHORAGE, Alaska, Nov. 1 (UPI) -- Wildlife authorities in Alaska said they have killed a large brown bear believed to be behind a series of residential break-ins.

Alaska Department of Fish and Game biologists said the grizzly bear, which is believed to have damaged several garage doors in Anchorage's Stuckagain Heights neighborhood in attempts to gain entry, the Anchorage Daily News reported Thursday.

Fish and Game area wildlife biologist Jessy Coltrane said a post-mortem examination determined the bear was not the same grizzly wounded by a resident last week after a string of chicken coop raids.

"We were hoping the chicken-eating bear was doing break-ins," Coltrane said.

He said authorities are on the lookout for a second bear.
