A bear cub was shot and killed Thursday by a Forest Falls resident who found it rummaging through the trash, authorities said.

The cub was in the resident's driveway when it was shot about 2 a.m., said Jodi Miller, a spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

No one was arrested, Miller said.

Sheriff’s officials notified the state Department of Fish and Game, which is handling the investigation.
