KODIAK, Alaska (AP) - A state wildlife official says a bear has broken into several garages in one Kodiak area neighborhood.

The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports (https://is.gd/dPoIcI) it appears one bear, a 3- or 4-year-old male, is behind the break-ins in Bell Flats.

State wildlife biologist Nathan Svoboda believes it’s the same bear that was causing problems late last year.

Last week, a bear broke into a freezer inside a garage and feasted on venison, rhubarb and nuts.

Svoboda says troopers and wildlife biologists have been trying to find the bear when they hear of break-ins, using non-lethal means like rubber bullets to condition the bear away from homes.



The U.S. Coast Guard also brought in bear experts to remind residents of bear-aware safety measures
