Plea Deal Reached For Loveland Man In Bear Death

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) – A Loveland man accused of illegally killing and eating a bear and other animals has admitted to four of 24 hunting-related criminal charges.

Paul Detwiler took a plea deal Thursday that would require him to serve probation or community corrections after he admitted to a felony charge of illegally possessing a gun and lesser charges of taking a black bear, illegally possessing wildlife and trapping.

Detwiler says he shot the bear because he feared for the safety of his daughters. He says the bear had rummaged through trash.
