Bummer!

I remember a few years ago, a bear that was spotted with some sort of plastic container that got stuck over its head.

Instead of just knocking the thing out with an anesthesia dart and then fixing the problem, Oregon Fish and WIldlife's finest just shot the thing dead. Said it was nearing a population center.

WTF??
