ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A father and son skied to a remote bear den on an Alaska island, shot a mother bear in front of her two cubs and then one of them turned his rifle on the shrieking newborns, killing them, authorities said Wednesday.

The men didn’t know that the black bears were part of an observation program and the slaughter was caught on video by a motion-activated camera outside the den.

The article goes on to state the following:

Andrew Renner, 41, and son Owen Renner, 18, have been charged with multiple counts, including the illegal killing of a bear and both cubs, in the April incident. Under state law, it’s illegal to kill black bear cubs or sows with cubs in most of Alaska, including where the shooting occurred.

The clips from April 14 show Andrew and Owen Renner approaching the den and noticing the female bear, court documents say.

“Owen Renner shoulders a rifle and fires at least two shots at the bear. Cubs begin shrieking in the den after the initial shots are fired,” court documents say. “The defendants listen for several minutes and eventually realize that it is not the dead sow, but the orphaned cubs, making the sounds. The defendants then move closer to the den where Andrew Renner takes aim through his rifle scope only feet away and fires several more shots, killing the newborn bear cubs.”

The report continues:

The camera then catches the elder Renner saying, “It doesn’t matter. Bear down.”

The father and son then drag the mother bear from the den and realize it has a Fish and Game collar.

“Undeterred, Andrew Renner states, ‘I’m gonna get rid of these guys’ while tossing the cubs’ limp carcasses onto the snow outside the den,’” the documents say.

    They’re ‘less than human’, they’re ‘scum’!!! No morals! No feelings! They ‘live to kill’! I say “No mercy!” “No jail time!” “Charge them with ‘murder’ and let the chips fall where they may.” Don’t punish everyone else by making the taxpayers ‘support them’ … cold-hearted, cruel people like that don’t deserve sympathy and compassion! GRRR ~ I’m very angry right now!!!

    Damn dumokraut liberals. They will arrest and charge for killing wild life but when it comes to AMERICAN CITIZENS getting killed or threatened the liberal judges let the illegals get away with no punishnent. What is wrong with this picture? Now illegals and wild life get better treatment than vets – homeless – AMERICAN CITIZENS!
