In just the past couple of weeks, black bears have died in two separate mishaps in the high Uintas of Summit County. Last week, as we’ve reported, a bear that invaded a Scout Camp, attracted by food left out in the open, was shot by a Scout leader.
In another case, in late June, a bear died after reacting badly to a tranquilizer shot, during a DWR tagging operation. Rich Brough has more.
A Salt Lake jury has levied damages of nearly $13 million against development attorney Tom Ellison, and the law firm where he’s a partner, judging that they botched an application to Summit County to build on about 7,000 acres held by long-time landowner David Bernolfo. Rick Brough has more.
