and your point is? look I never claimed to be a Rhodes scholar, just asking opinions, I already know how this will end, it won't be good for the bear, and I'm not gonna turn my mother in so just seeking opinions.

sorry for the grief, bro.

my suggestion is this: ask your owner of your local tackle and gear shop about this issue, so if you're liable for anything than you can (at least) point the finger (at the owner of the tackle shop).

be calm, cheers.

Call the DWR/Game and Fish/ what ever they are called there. The bear's comfort, even after she yelled at it, makes it a nuisance bear and a significant risk to her.

It's not fishy. RR was asking for options and I offered one. Most Game departments are thinly staffed and often can't come out for a wild animal problem in a timely manner. Different states, Sheriff's Departments and jurisdictions are going to have different protocols and may or may not be able to do something. In one of the mountain towns at my Sheriff's Department, Deputies carry shotgun rounds with rubber bullets to chase away problem bears from cabins and houses. Without an immediate threat to human life, a Sheriff's Department often can't do much more. It's too bad that RR doesn't have a buddy on the local Sheriff's Department in his mom's town as he could likely get some expert advice on legal options for that jurisdiction and probably some extra patrol, give his mom a business card, etc.

My youngest was into paint ball guns for awhile. His equipment ended up on a shelf in the garage forgotten.

I decided to put it to use using Pepper balls to encourage Raccoons to evacuate Grandmas Attic. It worked great.

I imagine it would do the trick on a Black Bear. The Rap4 balls I now use are at least as bad as getting Skunked, worse even.
