GLENBROOK, NV - The Nevada Department of Wildlife has killed its first bear of 2014 after saying it posed a threat to the public at Lake Tahoe.

The 3-year-old male black bear was chemically euthanized in Reno.

The bear had been captured when he was a cub in Carson City in 2011 and again in Glenbrook in 2013.

Department of Wildlife spokesman Chris Healy says the bear had become too much of a danger for humans.
