Montana Homeowner Shoots Grizzly In Self-Defense

posted on October 27, 2017

Last Sunday evening, a man in West Yellowstone, Mont., was loaded for bear. Literally.

After hearing a loud noise coming from his garage, the homeowner grabbed his gun and went to the front porch to investigate. That’s where he found a grizzly bear had broken through the huge metal door into the garage, where an elk carcass was hanging. When the bear spotted the homeowner, it turned and advanced. With no other choice, the man fired, fatally wounding the grizzly.

“We have a pretty clear case of self-defense here,” said Andrea Jones, a spokeswoman for Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks. Officers found bloody paw prints all around the home—including just a few feet from the front door. Paw prints were also discovered on the home’s living room window. Jones added that it is important for homeowners and hikers to remember that bears are still out looking for food to fatten up before winter.
