A giant bear named Hank broke into the homes of residents of a California town for 6 months

(ORDO NEWS) — A giant black bear is terrorizing the homes of a small California town. Local authorities, contrary to the requests of animal rights activists, are going to catch the bear and euthanize it.

A 227-pound bear has damaged 38 houses since the summer of 2021 and caused more than 100 calls to the police

Nicknamed Tank Hank by locals, the 227-pound bear has damaged 38 homes since the summer of 2021 and caused more than 100 calls to the police from residents of South Lake Tahoe, California. The bear does not attack anyone – it rummages through city trash cans and houses in search of food.

Now the California Department of Fish and Wildlife has said they have no choice but to trap and euthanize the bear as it has become too dangerous.

Not all residents of the city liked this radical decision. Some of them believe that the bear should be relocated to a reserve where he can live a safe life. The bear’s defenders break the traps and write obscene reproaches against the local authorities on them.

But why do they want to euthanize the bear?

Unfortunately, the bears that frequent urban areas are being killed. Black bears are usually afraid of people, but over time they get used to it and can behave aggressively.

Some animals found in urban areas are relocated to the wild. But if the bear gets used to the city, then relocation to the forest can harm him, since the bear will not have enough basic skills to survive in the wild. Officials believe that Tank Hank has no fishing skills and will simply starve to death if he is relocated to nature.

Luckily, fat bears are more loved in Alaska than they are in California. They even hold a special “Week of Fat Bears”, where they choose the most charismatic and, of course, the fat bear.
