Colorado wildlife agency offers $ for scoop on dead bear

TRINIDAD, Colorado ” The Colorado Division of Wildlife is offering a $1,000 reward for information about a bear shot in Trinidad.

The 425-pound bear was found dead in a yard in town Monday night.

State wildlife officer Bob Holder says he received a call about a big bear sleeping in a yard. When he arrived, the bear was dead.

Holder says it’s legal to shoot a bear in some circumstances, but not for wandering through someone’s property or digging in their trash.

Anyone with information can call a DOW hotline at 1-877-265-6648 or e-mail game.thief@state.co.us.
