Dozens of Burlington residents gathered at town hall to discuss living alongside black bears on Tuesday night after two recent attacks.
Last week, officers had to shoot and kill a mother bear after it attacked a family dog. Before that, a bear got into a pen at a family farm and killed five goats.
State environmental officials tell News 8 their goal at the meeting was to educate folks. They handed out ‘Be Bear Aware’ flyers and answered questions.
