Neighborhood bear "Jasper" killed in Tahoe

    It only takes one person who is irrationally terrified of black bears to cause a neighborhood crisis anywhere, but at Lake Tahoe, most people love them.

   When a deputy responded
to a complaint of "Jasper" in their yard at Lake Tahoe, what she thought was a rubber bullet turned out to be a live round, and although Fish and Wildlife tried to save her, she died from her wounds.

   The Bear League, who works with residents in the area to protect the bears, is investigating the accident.  Residents who loved Jasper are grieving at such an unnecessary waste of life.

Take all guns away from Deputies since they are untrained and unable to know the difference between a rubber bullet and a real one! What if this was a rioting Antifa?
