CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire wildlife officials are continuing to warn residents about bears looking for food following encounters between bears and people in recent weeks.

A Bristol police officer shot and killed a bear last month after the officer responded to a bear complaint at a home and the animal ran toward him.

The homeowner told WMUR-TV (https://bit.ly/2qNoJh8 ) that he found the bear in his garage and that the animal had torn off his door frame.

Two black bears also entered a home in Hanover near Dartmouth College. The state planned to euthanize the mother bear and three cubs but after public outcry decided to relocate the animals to the northern part of the state instead.

The move comes as the bear population in northern New England is growing.
