Early Tuesday morning, a young bear family found some unsecured trash cans in Evergreen, Colorado, and began to rummage through them. They were spotted by the homeowner, Daniel C. Williams. Instead of leaving the bears alone or calling officials, Williams decided to scare them off.

He first fired two rounds of rubber buckshot at them, both of which missed.

When his dog slipped outside, he fired a round of live ammunition at the cubs, hitting both of them at once and a neighbor’s window.

Although the district attorney hasn’t yet taken action, Williams is facing a number of charges including felony illegal discharge of a weapon, harassing wildlife with a dog and unlawful hunting.
