Bear in Washington that survived burns from wildfire was shot, killed by hunter, officials say

Today 13:36 GMT

A black bear named Cinder nearly lost her life after suffering severe burns following a wildfire that ravaged parts of Washington state in 2014.

Now, the animal — whose rehabilitation story made national headlines and inspired a children's e-book — was reportedly found shot by a hunter who cut off the animal’s tracking collar and left her remains behind. The bear’s radio-transmitting collar had stopped sending signals in October 2017, leading wildlife officials to first assume Cinder had gone into hibernation for the winter, KOMO-News reported.
