I question the notion that a black bear in Massachusetts is a threat to human life. It is extremely rare that it’s necessary to shoot an eastern black bear. What’s the backstory here?

As another FReeper pointed out, this was discussed on a thread yesterday.

The man lives in a suburb of Worchester, MA. The town of Auburn has a population of 15K. It is probably 40 miles west of downtown Boston. This is not out in the country. He almost certainly has other houses within 500’ of his.

He went out to fill his bird feeder. There was a bear in his back yard. It chased him. He went out a second time to fill the feeder. This time he was armed with his shotgun. He shot and killed the bear.
