Black bear killed by homeowner

A 29-year-old Town of Conklin shot and killed a black bear that had been roaming through the Pride Manor Mobile Park neighborhood on Conklin Road in the Town of Conklin, according to Broome County Sheriff’s Deputy Andrew Eggleston.

The man, fearing for the welfare of his children, shot the bear before law enforcement and environmental protection officers reached the scene, Eggleston said.

The incident occurred around 9:55 p.m. Monday, according to a sheriff’s office report.

Shane M. Wood told officers he got his shotgun and shot the bear when it was across the road from his driveway and turned toward him.
