Salish and Kootenai Tribes won't prosecute for bear death

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of Montana won't file charges against a landowner who shot and killed a grizzly bear.

Authorities said the shooting was justified. The bear was threatening chickens and property.

The tribe will be offering a free class on electric fencing next month to deter bears from approaching property.
