Bear roaming Zigzag yards trapped, euthanized

Posted: Updated:

The black bear roaming homeowners' yards in Zigzag was trapped and euthanized Tuesday, an official from the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife confirmed to Fox 12.

Neighbors in the small town had reported the bear running through their yards and going through their garbage cans.

Some residents even came face to face with the animal, which was one of the reasons the ODFW decided it had to kill the bear.

Since the bears have started to return to the neighborhoods after being caught, state officials told Fox 12 the bear would have to be put down to ensure it would not hurt anyone.
