BOULDER — A black bear cub was found drowned in a backyard Boulder swimming pool, apparently getting stuck under a pool cover.
The Daily Camera reports (http://bit.ly/1mT6hK3 ) that the drowning happened Saturday night.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife say the cub's mother killed several chickens in a nearby chicken coop the night of the drowning.
An agency spokeswoman says the drowning was a "freak accident." Bears are typically strong swimmers.
