Just caught a piece of something about a bear getting into a house and mauling a couple folks near Harrisburg.... Anything to it?

first, I would probably replace the dog--seems like he is the one that led his new buddy into the house. second i would probably have had a little more sense than to try bear herding in my house---front door for me. If you are determined to shoot the bear, your home doesn't seem like the best place for it---a mad bear is something a smart man does not want to be caught in a corner with.

Thats' just a freak accident. Yes, stupid to chase the bear. Of course newspapers often get the facts wrong also.

Hmmm....scary situation. Rifle shot right in the eye usually does the trick, if you can get to your Winchester in time.

Guess I can see how it would happen- we're not very good at my place about leaving doors closed in the summer- bear takes after dog, dog runs in house, bear follows, things quickly degenerate from there.

As bear is coming in the back door, you want to be heading out the front door, ASAP. Arguments about property rights, rights of ownership, "man's home is his castle", etc. become academic at that point. Strategically placed gun is great, if you can get to it. Otherwise, SCRAM!

And don't forget to close the door on your way out. I'll take 'em a minute to figure out the door knob.....

Before my farm house burned, I kept the shotgun right by the back door. I thought everyone did?

Dosent have to be loaded.Plus kids should be shown early on what a gun can do.As soon as they are old enough they should be taught to shoot a 22.This takes the mystery out of guns so they wont play with them.

I use the 210 grain variety out of a .35 Remington for my means of persuasion. Works well.

"Why do we need them around anyway?" You mean, why do we need people ignorant enough to try to chase a bear out of their house? See my post above. Stupid trumped right, in this case, I guess. Sometimes it is a fine line.

didnt you know bears have rights also? he was only doing what bears do,those folks should have known better than to build their house where that bear wanted to be!yea right,,i like the idea of a pump shotgun loaded with slugs myself,takes care of a lot of that "wildlife interaction" nonsense.I would learn to live with them alright,i could live with a bear rug in front of the fireplace!

Jack I used to bear hunt with hounds. One day we treed and nice bear and a guy was going to shoot it. we tied the dogs back and the bear was sitting up the tree and he shot and the bear started down, he shot the second time. He didn't have tim to shoot the third time because the bear had run him over. We got the bear about a hour later and had some one else kill him. The first shooter shot one leg off and the lower jaw. Unless you are cool calm and collective I think the fetal position is a better move. Just a thought from someone who has see what can happen when someone gets in a hurry.

but i kind of like the idea if you see one in the back yard ,shoot it then.one well placed shot generally does the trick.In my opinion,what went wrong here was the bear lived long enough to chase the dog in the first place.LOL shooting the bear when its in your house,is like killing the bull for goring the bullfighter.It all goes back to that stupid sign thing.The folks probably have been seeing that bear for months,you know how it works,thought it was sort of cool to see him every day.Then one day the bear decided he had enough of some useless hound yapping at him and did what a bear does.Who's fault would you say it was?the bears? or the folks who more or less invited him in?my thought is this,if your not going to do something about them running around the neighborhood,its your own fault when they come in the house.Sort of like the skunk in the chicken house,you can keep the skunk out,or you buy lots of chickens.i just dont get all those folks who think a bear , deer ,or things in your yard is natural.

You are so correct. Also if they shot it when it first showed up they could be eating some good eating if cooked right instead of suffering from wounds from being STUPID. nuf said

When you encounter bear in the hallway, you may not be lucky enough to have the slug-loaded shotgun within reach. And you don't have a lot of time to go find it.

Bravado sometimes has to yield to common sense.

The news reported that the man got up to let his dog out and it wasn"t daylight yet. The game commision speculates that the dog got between the bear and her cubs. The man heard the dog barking outside, opened the door to let him in. The dog ran in with the bear in hot pursuit. The man proceded to wrestle(???) the bear to get it out of the house. With all of the noise he woke his wife who found them rolling around in the living room. She attempted to hit the bear to help her husband and the bear turned on her. The bear then fled the house leaving the couple chewed and clawed up pretty good. The news this morning showed the couple back at home. Luckily they weren"t hurt more severely and I wish them a speedy recovery.
