Bear gets into garage, tears down shelves

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. - A bear entered a Glenwood Springs residential garage through a door that had been left ajar and ripped down shelves and got into a freezer.

The Glenwood Springs Post Independent reports (postindependent.com ) the incident occurred Wednesday.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife has set up a trap for the bear and plans to relocate it unless it has a tag indicating it has been captured before for causing problems.

Wildlife officials euthanize problem bears.

Officials say this incident alone would not condemn the bear. Only bears that enter a home through a locked door or locked window are considered aggressive.
