Stranded Bear helped by Conservation officers

22 Dec

Indiana Conservation Officers were kept busy over the weekend responding to a number of floodwater rescue calls. Even the unexpected – 500-pound black bear stranded in its cage in Shelby County. Late Sunday morning, Conservation Officers responded to a call asking them to check on the welfare of a black bear in the Fairland area that was left behind when its owner was forced to evacuate his home due to flooding in the area caused by heavy rains across central Indiana. Officers discovered the 500-pound black bear in about four feet of water but secured in its 10-foot by 12-foot enclosure. Due to safety concerns for the officers and the animal, it was determined that tranquilizing the animal was not a viable option.
However, officers were able to enter the enclosure and create an elevated platform for the bear to get above the water. While officers were on scene, it appeared the water level was receding.
State law allows a person to possess a black bear provided a permit is obtained from the Department of Natural Resources. The owner of this bear had the required permit and was following procedural requirements.

Just one day after asking for help from the public in identifying a Gary Homicide victim, the office of Lake County Coroner Merrilee Frey has issued a statement that the victim has been identified as Emmanuel Dominguez of Chicago.  The coroner further stated that the cause of death was multiple stab wounds.  This incident occurred on November 4, 2013 in the 2700 block of Maryland Street in Gary, Indiana.

This appears to be the same Emmanuel Dominguez who was reported missing on Halloween in Chicago.  CBS Chicago reported at that time that “Family members have mounted missing person flyers around that warehouse district where he was last seen.”  Dominguez’ car was discovered days after halloween according to published reports.  He was last seen with his girlfriend who was questioned by police.
