RENO, Nev. (KRNV, & AP) — A black bear with a rap sheet for breaking and entering has been killed by Nevada wildlife officials.

The Nevada Department of Wildlife says the 2-year-old male had broken into an Incline Village home on Friday and Saturday nights and was apparently preparing to do so again Monday when a game warden tranquilized and then killed the bear.  During the weekend break-ins, the bear was sprayed with bear spray but still returned to the same area Monday night, when it was observed trying to break into a truck at the same residence.

Officials say the bear was fearless of people and was euthanized on scene because it was a danger to humans.

It was the fourth nuisance bear killed by wildlife officials this year.

Google is paying 80$ per hour! Just work for few hours & spend more time with friends and family. Yesterday I bought a top of the range Lancia after having made $9458 this month . Its the most-financialy rewarding I've had. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it out

Which should count toward the hunt quota; better yet, use the old Ponderosa for a quick "release and no recapture" 'special event'.
