Romanian leader: Officials mishandled bear shooting

BUCHAREST, Romania – Romania's president on Thursday criticized the way authorities handled the case of a brown bear that was shot by police after it wandered into a central city.

The bear entered Sibiu, a picturesque tourist city, on Wednesday and was shot by a police rifleman after an attempt with a tranquilizer dart failed. Video of the bear being shot that appeared on social media led to protests from Romanians who say the frightened creature was not a threat.
