JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Alaska authorities say they have shot and killed a black bear that lumbered through the front door of a home in the state's capital while people were inside.
Juneau police say in statement Saturday that the residents were on the first floor, the same level where officers spotted the bear in the two-story home in the city's downtown.
Police say the bear appeared briefly in a doorway, and an officer fired a shotgun twice at the animal. It ran behind the home and was later found dead.
Investigators determined the animal came in through the front door. The doorknob didn't work, so the door could be pushed open easily.
Last week, a bear tried to break into a kitchen in Sitka, south of Juneau, after the homeowner baked a pizza.
