Bear Euthanized after Entering Incline Village Condo

Posted: Updated:

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. (AP) -- Nevada wildlife officials say they were forced to euthanize a bear that entered an Incline Village condominium because the bruin posed a danger to the public.
 
A woman phoned authorities after encountering the 3-year-old, 325-pound male bear inside her unit late Thursday night on Lake Tahoe's north shore.
 
The Reno Gazette-Journal reports the black bear apparently entered the condo through an open garage door and unlocked door.
 
A Nevada Department of Wildlife biologist tranquilized the bear after it broke an upstairs window. The bear jumped from the building, climbed a tree and then fell to the ground.
 
Wildlife officials say they decided to euthanize the bear because of its behavior in entering the structure. The bear knocked over a dresser, knocked a mirror off the wall and tore up a couch.
