Two men in central Newfoundland have been charged for shooting black bears that wandered onto their properties last summer.
Glovertown resident Colin Oram, 59, faces charges of shooting a bear without a licence and discharging a firearm near a dwelling.
In August, Oram told CBC he shot a bear that was standing on his front porch at about 3 a.m. He said after he reported the shooting to the RCMP, wildlife officials confiscated his rifle.
Fred Williams was also charged after he shot a bear on his property in Sandringham.
Both communities were dealing with wandering black bears for most of last summer.
