Aspen, Colo. (AP) A wildlife manager who investigated the shooting of a yearling bear May 19th in the Aspen area has spoken to prosecutors about the case.
But any decision on charges could be a week or two away.
No citation was issued before the weekend.
State wildlife officials say a homeowner in Lazy Glen Mobile Home Park shot the yearling Colorado black bear, which weighed 40 to 50 pounds. They say the bear was chased out of a home and shot outside.
Names of any suspects haven't been released.
Attorney Arnold Mordkin, who once defended a man who shot a bear on Basalt Mountain, says state law allows those who feel threatened by a bear to defend themselves with deadly force.
