Black bear euthanized after eating Canada murderer

Canadian conservation officers have euthanized a black bear which they think ate the remains of a convicted murderer.

[Terry] Lake says the animal was put down because bears remember food sources.

Officials suspect the bear pulled the body of Rory Wagner, 54, from his car after he died on a remote logging road.

Wagner pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in 1994. He and two others were charged with a killing a man who they believed had sexually assaulted a family member. He served his prison time and was released.

Wagner was reported missing May 23. Police say his death was not suspicious. Hunters found the site last week.

Well, if someone sexually assulted a family member of mine, I might be a murderer too.

Just sayin.....

If I had a nickel for every time that I've seen a headline like that one, I'd have, um, a nickel.

There are enough sub-plots in this story for a whole soap opera.

Well that’s unfortunate for the bear! I would have given the bear a medal and offered it a job in the prison courtyard so that it would have a buffet every day.

He's a Canadian bear, and so he'd really prefer a Molson.

The bear didn’t kill him, it ate him after he was dead.

It’s because the bear was black, wasn’t it. I bet if it was a polar bear, he would have walked. Racist Canadians.

“The Lord works in mysterious ways. Though I think the bear should have been rewarded.”

I said the same thing to myself from the beginning.

I would have set the little guy free in the middle of the Capitol (District of Crooks).

But then, that would have been a form of cruelty to animals.

But anyway, he did do us a favor. He got rid of that sicko.

I would have freed him in a safe area…safe to the bear.

I am very sorry for the poor bear.

The bear ate carrion, Wagner having committed suicide days earlier.

From the link:

UPDATE: Officials have confirmed Saturday morning one of the bears trapped has been euthanized. A necropsy will likely be performed in the coming days to confirm the bear was the animal that ate Wagner's remains.

Unfortunately it was the right call. Nothing worse in the wild than a predator with a taste for human flesh.

If someone assaulted anyone in my family I would consider it a fair deal if they were made into bear poop.

Especially if they were alive to enjoy as much of the experience as possible

Thank you for that added post.

Worse yet:

How did they know that was the bear who ate a dead body…and being it was a stiff, who cares? The bear didn’t kill the pervert.

Was the little guy given his Miranda Rights? It doesn’t seem so.

Am I missing something? Why is the dead guy a “pervert”? He killed someone he thought had sexually assaulted a family member.

Andy Kohlman was the guy who was found innocent of sexually assaulting Rory Wagner’s neices. Judging by Wagner’s short sentence, it is reasonable to believe Kohlman was guilty of the rapes.

I’m gonna go with “Bear eats corpse of man who’s life was ruined because the system couldn’t convict the man who raped his nieces.”

Rot in hell, Andy Kohlman. Be at peace, Rory Wagner.

The bear ate the guy who killed the rapist.

Forgive me.

I needed to keep my trap shut from the start. I just can’t seem to get into the original article from start to finish for any length of time. My computer keeps shutting down.

This means I was “assuming.”

I need to call in my computer doctor sometime this week.

My apologies to you and all.

P.S.

I am still for the poor bear.

Whether it was this bear or another bear, somebody was hungry.

Why wait for the flies and worms?

Unfortunately, most of us are flesh eaters. I take no pride in it, but I can’t function without meat.

I will be calling my computer doctor this week so he can come to my home to fix my computer.

Personally, I would have given the bear a drug dealer for dessert.
