Two Dogs Killed In Sitka Bear Attacks

Here’s more on the attacks from Sitka’s KCAW:

Over the weekend, a bear in the Indian River subdivision area did some serious property damage and killed a dog — the second dog killed in the last month. 

On Saturday night, Bethune said, a homeowner had left a processed deer securely hanging in a sturdy, enclosed shed in his backyard. But that didn’t stop the very determined bear.

“The bear tore through a wall of that shed, so it really made a tremendous effort to get into the shed and it took the deer. And then, at the same time the homeowner’s dog went missing,” he says.
