Buena Vista resident Resa Sawyer had already lost six goats to a bear, so on Sunday evening when the bear returned and tried to get another goat, she was ready.
She shot at it. When that didn’t work she ran out and yelled at him.
The bear backed away, jumped over a fence and turned his attention to meat left in a state Game and Fish Department trap, sealing his fate.
