Cornish police shoot, kill bear that attacked chickens

In the latest Upper Valley bear news, we are sad to report a young bear was shot and killed on Monday in Cornish after it attacked some chickens being kept at a Center Road home. From today’s Valley News:

Cornish Police Chief Doug Hackett said the bear started to become a problem on Saturday when it killed at least one chicken at a home off Center Road and wouldn’t leave the area when spooked.

“I responded four times on Saturday. There was constant conflict back and forth,” Hackett said on Wednesday. “(The bear) was unafraid of humans.”

Hackett said the bear was involved in “more conflict” on Monday, so after consulting with Fish and Game Conservation Officer Kevin Bronson, Cornish police Sgt. Corey Stevens shot the bear around 8:30 p.m.

N.H. Town Meeting results are going up now

The school modernization plan went down in Lebanon, and we’ve got more results going up at our Town Meeting 2018 keyword throughout the night.

A group of helpful #CornishNH residents help push the car of Ally Samuell, of #HanoverNH, up a slippery incline after Town Meeting at Cornish Elementary School earlier today. Samuell, a community organizer with the Sierra Club, was at the meeting to support an article petitioned by the Cornish Energy Committee to set a goal for the town to get 100 percent of its electricity from #renewable sources by 2030, and the same for all of its heating and transportation energy by 2050. The measure passed. 🔺 Results from today’s #NH town meetings are currently going up at www.vnews.com as they are received, including from #LebNH, where a plan to modernize the city’s school buildings has failed. 🔺 Find more in Wednesday’s Valley News.
