LOCKWOOD, Mont. (AP) - Montana wildlife officials euthanized a female black bear that broke into at least one home in a neighborhood near Lockwood.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1KpC4QF ) that game wardens with Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks euthanized the bear Tuesday after it had also attempted to break into other buildings this week. The newspaper reports the bear had been seen wandering the Emerald Hills neighborhood and appeared unafraid of people.

This is the time of year when bears try to consume as much food as possible before hibernating during winter. Wildlife officials are advising residents to be careful not to leave trash or food easily accessible to bears.
