SIMSBURY -- State officials said they euthanized a bear after it had broken into a home Saturday.

Officials said in a statement, "State EnCon Police and Simsbury Police responded to a residence in Simsbury on Saturday morning for a report of a black bear that had broken into a home. State EnCon Police euthanized the bear. The bear was identified through its ear tag as one that had entered multiple homes last year."
