Mother, Cubs Killed for B&E -- Twice in One Week

Colorado wildlife officials have had to kill two mother bears and their cubs (both had two cubs, as well) after the bears broke-in to residences. According to experts, bears become a danger once they begin breaking-in to residences. Bears eat more this time of year in order to pack-on pounds for hibernation.

Wildlife officials say people feeding the bears illegally may be to blame, as it acclimates them to humans, whom they usually avoid.
