Newtown residents sound off on bear shooting

Summary by Ground News
Law enforcement officers with the state's Department of Energy and Environmental Protection ruled that Lawrence Clarke, the off-duty Ridgefield police officer who shot the black bear more than three months ago, did so because he feared for his life. In Newtown, no weapon can be discharged within 500 feet of a neighboring property or structure. An exception to that rule exists if an individual firing the weapon is doing so in self-defences.
