Bear shooting ignites controversy

Email

A bear that got its head stuck inside a plastic jug wandered through two counties for six days before being euthanized when wildlife officials couldn't get close enough to pry the jug off.

The bear's long odyssey came to a tragic end near Frazee July 26. The 2-year-old bear was first reported near Lake George July 21 with a 2 1?2-gallon jug jammed onto its head. It then made an extensive, almost 60-mile trip to Frazee.
