Police: Father, son caught on video shooting mother bear, ‘shrieking’ cubs
ESTHER ISLAND, Alaska -- On Esther Island in Alaska, a motion-detecting camera was set up in a bear den as part of a joint three-year study between the U.S. Forest Service and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. What that camera captured has led to felony and misdemeanor charges against a father and son, who authorities say shot dead a sow black bear and her two just-born cubs, then tried to cover it up once they saw the mother bear was collared, the Anchorage Daily News reports.
