I read an article in the "Orange County Register" yesterday
regarding the killing of the bear. The scout leader and the boys
claimed that the bears had been in and out of their camp several
times during the night. They got into their food, which they had
strung up in a tree, and thrown things around in camp. In the
morning it seems that they tried to scare away the bears by throwing
rocks at them and it escalated. The scouts are insisting that it
was self defense and the rangers are saying that they don't see any
evidence of that.
I'll let you know if there is any more news.
