A black bear has been harassing my neighbors and now one of my cats is missing.
Which best available weapon to have on hand: tomahawk, .40 s&w, Colt M4 .22, M1A .308, or the old 12 gauge?

    Just yell at it, they fuck off to the next county at the sight of their own shadow. If it remains a pest get the opossum cops involved, any field work beats riding a desk.

      I agree, outdoor cars are a menace to the environment. Just look at how many bikes they kill annually when left to their own devices

    .308 will do fine. So will a 12 bore with slugs. Also, I have never heard of a blackie being able or inclined to corner and eat a cat.

      The M1A or the 12 gauge with slugs, pumpkin balls or 00 buck

      These, .223 not softpoint will also take care of it but less ethical if you are so inclined

      Grab the shotgun and slug up. You're not going to be engaging the bear at ranges where .308 makes a difference and you can much more easily plead emergency self-defense if the game warden and/or cops get around to your place. Buckshot can spread weirdly or not release from the cup at back-porch ranges. Slug is fucking slug.

      On the West coast they aren't the size of a terrier, my man.

        Lmao you’re scared of big raccoons, the ones at my cabin scare themselves knocking trash cans over and run away if they see any sort of human.

      Yeah I'm pretty sure either a coyote or a car got the cat. Cats are usually too much of a hassle for a bear to catch.

      Despite being just 13% of the bear population, they're responsible for 56% of all attacks on pets

      I doubt 00 buck would be humane. He should use slugs or the 308

    Here’s what I’ll say.
    >1. Black Bears aren’t known to attack cats in fact I don’t genuinely think I’ve heard of such a thing happening. Coyotes and Bobcats/Cougars sure, but black bears are rather slow and clumsy compared to cats.
    >2. Shooting within a suburban neighborhood/city lines is very typically illegal under most circumstances apart from protecting a life.
    So unless the black bear is about to maul someone it’s likely going to leave you with some explaining to do with wildlife troopers. I’m speaking from experience. I had a friend who lived in North Florida fire his Glock 40 at a black bear in his backyard. Neighbor ended up calling the cops after they heard a gunshot. When they came out the tried to discern what happened he didn’t end up killing the bear so it got away and he was cited with misdemeanor for discharging his firearm in a residential area. They way they described it was the same as concealed carry. Usually yelling/bear mace are an effective first step if left with no other option then at least you’re legally justified in firing your weapon.
    >3. Your best black bear gun is going to be a 12g with slugs.
    The kinetic energy from a slug is more than capable of dropping bears. There’s a reason people use them for black bear hunting.

    >TLDR If you shoot a bear without following escalation of force procedures in a residential area there’s a good chance you’ll have to deal with law enforcement. I know this is PrepHole so most people don’t care to take legally sound advice. Also 12G Slugs are the superior bear dropper.

    Black bears will fuck off if you stop leaving food out for them. They are like big racoons. If they are coming to houses regularly it is because they are leaving trash/food out unsecured. Secure it and it will stop coming around.

    Spray and less lethal projectiles will also get it to fuck off. Spray will go 30 feet. I would have someone try that first and you can have a firearm just in case, but 99% it is going to fuck off back to the woods as soon as it associates the area with trouble, not food. Bears are bros, don't kill them if you don't have too.

    It's highly unlikely a bear ate your cat. It's more likely it got killed by other things that came for the unsecured food the bear is also following.

    We had a bear coming to our dumpster at work. Chased it off once by throwing a rock at it, but it came back multiple times. It wasn't running very far, having gotten used to stray rocks so we kept marching towards it, occasionally throwing shit, and it would run a bit. Eventually it got more freaked out as we kept following it and would run further distances before stopping. We got it about 1.5 miles away and actually hit it with rocks a few times and it never came back.

    First you find it's habits, where it eats, sleeps shits, hunts, etc. Then you bait its game trail and set up an ambush with that M1A with your 12. as a backup in case Yogi doesn't get the message, then you either turn that fucker into a rug or mount it's head on a pike deep in bear territory as a message to the other bears. It's you or them, show them that they are at your mercy and they only live because you allow them to do so.

    Bears are nice if you're a sociable bottom. Any cat so incompetent at catting as to get beared is best removed from the gene pool.

    Stalk it. It will require more effort than you're willing. Spend one night outside from d to d. Watch it's movements. You have to sit, quietly. That said, black bears are gays unless you're naked in the forest. .243 if you want it it extra loud. Scream at it at first, it'll never come back. If it does, kill it, idk why this is so difficult.
