Outrage Over Killing of Disabled Bear With One 'Arm' Who Made the Fatal Mistake of Stealing Pies From Expensive US Neighbourhood

He was a skinny bear with only one arm, who could do little more than scavenge for food in order to survive. He was a common sight as he ambled along golf courses and the neighbourhood

Noted. So very sad and avoidable. They should've worked to relocate the bear or take him to a sanctuary. Thanks so much, Barbara.

Tranquillizer guns and a van ride to a more wild are a would have been the best weapons against a skinny bear. RIP dear bear.

Shame, how terribly sad - this poor animal - heartless bastards - could they not have helped him in some way. Those in their expensive little neighbourhood - I hope your bloody houses all burn down with you in it.

"upscale" being a euphemism for "parasitic"

Chalk another one up for the Carolinas! Hoosier animal abusers that participate in every imaginable form of animal abuse! I will never be spending any money there!

I am utterly disgusted by this callous behavior....What is wrong with these people. Why couldn't they call a sanctuary, or almost better yet, call the media. They would love to do a little feature like this on their news program. Anything to help gain a little compassion (and maybe even help) for this disabled animal. RIP poor little bear.

Outrage over the fact he had lost one arm, almost guaranteed caused by humans in some way, and then sorrow that he didn't know he 'wasnnt' supposed to' eat anything from an upscale neighbourhood, plus how stupid humans can be who then shoot him. Words fail me.

Poor little bear was starving and these snobs could not show this baby one ounce of compassion. Heartless SOB's. Rest in peace you innocent cub. Humans just keep showing how cruel they can be. Come on karma work your magic.

May the same compassion shown to this little bear by uncaring humans be given to them in their time of need!

so very sad & heartbreaking that this precious soul had to struggle for survival only to be shot down. These spiteful bastards took the quick and cowardly route...he could have been rescued and placed in a sanctuary xx

Poor little guy. I despise the human race sometimes!

Sadly noted. Thanks, Barbara.

Why did it come to this!?!? Where were concerned "community members" when they first noticed the cub was severely wounded!?!? Why is the wildlife in Carolina so utterly cheap and disposable!?!?
