OKANOGAN, Wash. (AP) - Authorities say a Washington state man has pleaded guilty to using doughnuts and food scraps to draw bears close to his cabin so he and others could shoot them.
State Fish and Wildlife Officer Dan Christensen tells KING-TV ( http://is.gd/ECpYAo) that James Erickson and his family members and friends would lure the bears in, then shoot them from a chair off the back of the cabin near Winthrop.
The 52-year-old Erickson pleaded guilty Friday to bear baiting and was sentenced to six days in jail. As part of the deal, charges against others were dropped.
