A Haines man faces misdemeanor charges after shooting three brown bears on his property last month.
The Beach Road resident was charged on June 27th with three Class A misdemeanors.
The man contacted Haines police and Alaska Wildlife Troopers on June 17th to report he shot a sow and two cubs that were getting into his trash.
A dispatch from state troopers says an investigation found he did not follow the regulations in place for taking of game in defense of life or property.
The man was issued a summons to appear in Haines court.
