A black bear was killed by in a Montana couple’s home in Luther, which is approximately an hour and 20 minutes southwest of Billings, near Red Lodge.
According to an article on the Associated Press website, Thomas Bolkcom, 27, and his fiance, Seeley Oblander, 26, stayed up late the night before, as they were heading to Arizona that morning for their bachelor and bachelorette parties. Their dog, Maizey, woke them up barking at approximately 3:00am from upstairs.
