The department’s deputy police chief, Mike Cenci, said Thursday they’ll probably leave the traps out through the weekend.
He says the bear should be killed to prevent it from harming anyone else on the Long Beach Peninsula.
The bear was raiding a garbage can early Friday when the woman let her pet schnauzer outside and it was killed by the bear. It bit her on the waistline as she tried to drive it off with a broom.
Cenci says bears in the mild climate of Western Washington don’t hibernate and will be active all winter.
