The roars and howls emanating from the property of a man who kept a menagerie of wolves, tigers and bears had many of his neighbors fed up even before one of the bears attacked and killed its 24-year-old caretaker.
A bear that mauled to death a caretaker was euthanized Saturday at the request of the family of the victim, whose father said he had told his son to leave the job.
A bear owned by a man who used to offer people the chance to wrestle the animals mauled its 24-year-old caretaker to death during a feeding on property containing other bears, many wolves, and perhaps lions and tigers, authorities said Friday.
When he moved into the area two years ago, he said, a neighbor showed him a video of a tiger loose on their street.
"We don't know yet what actions may be taken regarding the bear, but right now the bear is secured and there are no plans at this time for destroying it," he said.
