Daniel Clay Williams, 50, of Evergreen, Colorado was woken up by some noise outside his house earlier this month. He went out and discovered that there were two black bear cubs and a sow rummaging through his trash cans. Williams reportedly shot two rubber buckshot loads at the bears and then shot a live round when his dog ran outside. The live shell killed one cub, injured another and caused damage to a nearby building. The injured cub was later euthanized and the sow climbed a nearby tree and hung out for hours after the incident. Williams is facing eight criminal charges including illegal discharge of a firearm, aggravated animal cruelty and hunting out of season after killing the two bear cubs. He could face up to four and a half years of prison time for the two felonies.
A Colorado FWP spokesperson claimed they had done their part by providing Williams with rubber buckshot which he signed a waiver for and received instructions for safe use. The spokesperson said they did not tell him to have a live round behind the buckshot.
